Vaibhav Rikhye

Chief Product Officer

Healthcare has become increasingly unaffordable and inaccessible for many. While it’s an incredibly complex system with no silver bullet, I hope to make a difference through the work we do at Lightyear. 

As the Chief Product Officer, I work on finding and building technology and product solutions for our biggest business priorities. For us, this means using tech to automate, streamline or amplify growth operations, clinical activities or developing new therapeutic treatment strategies for patients. We work closely with our Clinical, Engineering, Data Science, Sales and Marketing teams to identify opportunities, build products and deploy solutions for customers.

Before joining Lightyear Health, I spent over six years in operations & strategy at Uber helping scale Uber’s Rides business. Prior to Uber, I worked in Tech investment banking at Union Square Advisors and BofA Merrill Lynch and as a management consultant at Deloitte. I have a B.S. in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley and an MBA from Wharton UPenn.

Outside of work, I enjoy exploring restaurants and craft cocktails with my wife Stacey, spoiling our puppy Bodhi, playing cricket and tennis and watching the occasional true crime drama.
