On September 6, 2023, Scott Stephenson, the former Chief Executive Officer of Verisk Analytics, joined the Board of Directors and the nominating and corporate governance committee of the Board, while Chris Mitchell, managing director of Spectrum Equity, stepped down from the Board of Directors.
“We are thrilled to welcome Scott Stephenson to the Definitive Healthcare Board of Directors,” said Jason Krantz, Executive Chairman of the Board and founder of Definitive Healthcare. “Scott brings a deep expertise in combining data and analytics to generate new intelligence for customers of all sizes.

On behalf of the entire Definitive Healthcare family, I want to thank him for his service.”
