Zelis names Bain Capital exec as its new CEO

Bedminster-based health care payments company Zelis has named a new CEO, it announced this week.

Amanda Eisel has joined the company from Bain Capital, where she played a leadership role in Zelis’ growth, operational and talent strategies.

“After working very closely with the company during the last two years, we are excited Amanda is now officially joining the Zelis family as its new chief executive officer,” Devin O’Reilly, managing director, Bain Capital Private Equity, said in a prepared statement. “Amanda is a growth-oriented leader who is exceptionally well-positioned to accelerate Zelis’ plans for growth and innovation.”

Eisel has 20 years of strategic management and investment industry experience, most recently as an operating partner with Bain Capital, and previously working with Waystar, Rocket Software and others. She also spent nearly a decade with McKinsey & Co.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Zelis,” she said in a statement. “As a payments company at the intersection of payers, providers and health care consumers, Zelis is uniquely positioned to simplify the very complex end-to-end payments experience. I am looking forward to partnering with our clients and the Zelis team to transform the health care payments ecosystem through technology and innovation.”

She succeeds CEO R. Andrew Eckert, who is stepping down for personal reasons.
