Leadership

The Springbuk team is led by a group of individuals who go above and beyond to ensure our organization, customers, and community receive the support and direction needed to achieve their goals.

Rod

Rod Reasen

CEO & Co-Founder

Rod Reasen is the CEO of Springbuk, a health data analytics solution with a vision to prevent disease with data. Before launching Springbuk, Rod founded and scaled a fee-based benefits consulting firm into one of the largest in the Midwest when it was acquired by a publicly-traded firm in 2010.

In 2009, he launched the nationally recognized Healthiest Employers® award program that has recognized thousands of employers at the top healthiest workplaces across America. From those learnings, Rod dreamed of a day where employers could make the best-unencumbered decisions using data. That passion drove him to co-found Springbuk, which now represents more than 4,000 employers including hundreds of household brands. His energy is contagious and the world is benefiting from his vision to disrupt healthcare.
