- Lisa GranChief Executive OfficerLisa GranChief Executive Officer
For more than 20 years, Lisa has had her foot in both sides of the health management industry — workers’ compensation and integrated health management — creating and consulting on effective cost containment solutions for organizations nationally.
She began her career with a large national bill review and case management company in 1998. By 2004 she was the co- owner of a thriving workers’ compensation cost containment company providing consulting and program development to various industries across the country. The company was sold in 2008.
She then shifted her focus to the prevention side of cost containment, joining an innovative health management organization as co-owner and Vice President providing corporate health and wellness consulting and programming for employers around the country. Her clients achieved documented results of incredible improvements in health and significant reductions in costs.
Realizing how connected workers’ compensation and health management really are, she founded Splashlight in 2011 to provide a disruptive strategic breakthrough for employers to not only reduce their claims costs but enhance their employees’ wellbeing and quality of life while improving their bottom line.
In 2014, Lisa received the “Iowa Women of Innovation Entrepreneur of the Year” award.
