Foster joins Truepill with an impressive track record of building and scaling human resources departments for some of today’s leading companies. Most recently, he served as Chief People Officer at TrueCar. Prior to that, Foster was Hulu’s first Chief Human Resources Officer, where he built the company’s entire HR function from the ground up. He also held significant HR leadership roles at Fidelity Investments, Levi Strauss, Citibank, and Mercury Interactive.

“I’m inspired by Truepill’s mission to transform consumer healthcare, and believe that the way we prioritize our own employees’ personal health and wellness is a reflection of that mission,” said Foster. “I’m proud to join a company that places high value on individual well-being, and look forward to leveraging my experience to cultivate a workplace that provides a positive, developmental experience for every member of our team.”

Truepill has built significant momentum over the past year, as evidenced by the closing of a $142 million Series D funding round with a $1.6 billion valuation, and the launch of three ground-breaking COVID-19 digital health solutions. The company will continue to build out its executive leadership team with a seasoned, diverse roster of industry leaders, whose experience complements that of the current leadership team.
