SEATTLE--()--Arivale, a company that provides individuals a scientific path to wellness, announced today that BlueKai co-founder Grant Ries has joined as chief revenue officer. Arivale is creating a new sector, scientific wellness – by combining personalized data and coaching to optimize wellness and aid in avoiding disease.

“Grant is a visionary executive and CEOs across industries look to Grant for the next big innovation,” said Arivale CEO Clayton Lewis. “His unique experience in creating a data ecosystem that launched an entirely new sector, combined with a strong track record in building fast-growth companies, will be instrumental in driving Arivale’s growth.”

Arivale uses cutting-edge science, personalized data and tailored coaching to deliver prioritized, actionable recommendations that inspire clients to extend and then sustain their unique wellness potential. Arivale will establish scientifically validated metrics to assess wellness for each individual and is building a research portal that will, over time, advance science and human health globally.

Arivale will present lifelong opportunities for individuals to optimize their wellness as the company continues to identify an increasing number of actionable possibilities — and participants receive ever increasing numbers of personalized and targeted recommendations. Ries will create and oversee Arivale’s enterprise engagement program, which will enable Fortune 500 companies to offer the Arivale program to their employees.

“I am passionate about exploring the intersection of healthcare and technology, while changing people’s lives one person at a time — and Arivale is exactly in that sweet spot,” stated Ries. “The combination of analyzing the correlations between different data sets — and presenting actionable recommendations by coaches — is an approach that has the potential to help millions of people. Further, it will transform the way people understand and improve their own health."

Companies are increasingly investing in the preventive health and wellbeing of their employees. Arivale’s program optimizes wellness and aids in disease prevention by evaluating billions of data points including fully sequenced DNA, clinical labs, environmental factors and other biomarkers. Arivale’s comprehensive approach fosters a robust corporate culture, ensuring better health outcomes and higher employee engagement and retention rates.

Ries was formerly co-founder and chief revenue officer of BlueKai, the digital marketing industry’s leading cloud-based big data SaaS (software-as-a-service) platform. BlueKai also provides the world’s largest third party data marketplace. In 2013, BlueKai was named one of Fast Company's "10 Most Innovative Global Companies in Big Data."
