Advisers in conversation: Using purpose and passion to drive better health outcomes

SUMMARY

For Nava Benefits CEO Brandon Weber, who grew up in northern Alaska, he always understood healthcare was financially unsafe for his blue-collar family. Despite starting his career building software and then becoming a technology entrepreneur, he always wanted to help fix the nation’s perverse healthcare system. EBN recently spoke with Morales and Weber about their respective healthcare journeys.

Lester Morales and Brandon Weber come from different backgrounds, and were raised on opposite ends of the U.S. But the two advisers have bonded over shared experiences, and a shared goal: fixing healthcare.

When the Puerto Rico-born Morales was just 15 years old, his father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, whose steep out-of-pocket treatment costs forced the family into personal bankruptcy in South Florida.

For Weber, who grew up in northern Alaska, he always understood healthcare was financially unsafe for his blue-collar family. Despite starting his career building software and then becoming a technology entrepreneur, he always wanted to help fix the nation’s perverse healthcare system.

Today, the pair are rising stars in the benefits advisory space, both fighting to find ways to provide better care at lowerprices. As CEO of Next Impact, Morales focuses on what he calls “Transparent Health Benefits.” Weber serves as co-founder and CEO of Nava, a tech-driven firm that brings digital healthcare solutions to small and midsize employers, with a focus on boosting member engagement.
