As we enter our sixth year of serving the digital health community, we can’t help but look back on the evolution of Rock Health. This organization has changed almost as much as the industry itself—from a fledgling startup accelerator to seed fund and research hub. We are incredibly proud and grateful to the employees, founders, and partners that have worked tirelessly to make Rock Health what it is today.
Finding a leader to take Rock Health to the next level was no easy task. We needed a candidate with a deep understanding of digital health, experience working with small and big companies alike, an inspiring vision for the future of the organization, and someone who possesses the unique Rock Health DNA.
Today we are thrilled to announce Rock Health’s new Managing Director, Bill Evans. Bill has been part of the Rock Health family since our early days in San Francisco’s Chinatown office. As a leader at one of our long-time partners, Bill has worked to support many of our portfolio companies over the years. His thoughtfulness and passion for healthcare are unparalleled.
For the past 13 years, Bill has worked at Genentech and Roche Diagnostics in informatics and product development leadership roles. Prior to Genentech, he was a senior software engineer at Epinions and an analyst at Goldman Sachs. He graduated from Harvard University and served as a volunteer EMT between 2008 and 2014.
We could not have found someone more qualified for the job. Please join us in welcoming Bill to the team!
