Lewisville-based Teladoc Inc., a telehealth company providing on-demand healthcare, has named David Schloss its first-ever chief human resources officer. The role was created to “support the increasing demands and requirements of the growing organization.”
Schloss has more than 25 years of healthcare experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and consumer healthcare industries. He most recently served as vice president of human resources at New York City-based Caladrius Biosciences, a clinical stage cell therapy company. There, he grew Caladrius’ Progenitor Cell Therapy (commonly known as PCT) development and manufacturing business. He also led the integration of a corporate acquisition. Schloss’ focus areas include performance management, organizational design, global recruitment, restructuring, and human resource information initiatives.
Teladoc CEO Jason Gorevic said in a statement: “As the Teladoc business has evolved and expanded, so too have our human resource needs. It’s paramount that we build on our HR foundation to continue to meet the talent acquisition, employee development and associated compliance needs of a growing and diverse employee pool. [Schloss] not only has the requisite depth of experience and demonstrated leadership capability, but is also a strong cultural fit to join the ranks of our executive management team.”
Schloss earned his bachelor’s degree in English at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., and a J.D. at the University of Miami School of Law.
