Former Kindbody CRO Taryn Branca Joins Pet Telehealth Company, Airvet, as Chief Commercial Officer

Feb 28, 2024

LOS ANGELES Airvet, the leading provider of pet telehealth and telemedicine services, announced today that Taryn Branca has been named its first Chief Commercial Officer. Branca brings over twenty years of experience in healthcare including digital health, insurance, and consulting. 

In her role as CCO, Branca will leverage her experience from previous roles at industry giant Mercer, and most recently as Chief Revenue Officer at Kindbody, the leading national fertility clinic network and global family-building benefits provider for employers, to further accelerate Airvet’s momentum in the employee benefits space. Airvet gained significant traction last year as an essential benefit for leading workplaces, partnering with employers across a variety of industries and sizes, including technology, manufacturing, and financial services. Some new partners that joined Airvet in 2023 include 1Password, Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast, Freshpet, Manulife, and RingCentral.

At Kindbody, Branca brought to market the first family building and fertility solution that offers a comprehensive delivery of care model to employers. Branca led the commercial team from startup to unicorn over her tenure and expanded revenue channels to include large and jumbo employers, strategic partnerships, and health plans.

“In my family, there are five children – three human and two fur. I have a deep and personal understanding of how our pets impact and influence productivity and mental well-being. Employers are just now starting to recognize that supporting and celebrating pet families in their organizations can lead to increased retention, reduced absenteeism, and an overall improvement in the employee experience. I’ve been deeply inspired by Airvet’s mission to give pet parents access to the best care and support possible and I am beyond excited to be joining the team at this moment in its journey,” said Branca.

“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Taryn as Airvet continues to redefine what it means for employers to offer innovative and inclusive family benefits. There are twice as many families with pets in the house than there are with human kids. Pet-related benefits are regularly at the top of the list of most desired benefits by employees. Taryn’s leadership and experience will be key for us as we enter this next stage of growth,” said Brandon Werber, CEO and founder of Airvet.
