Mestach will serve as director of network management and partnerships.

Previously, he has served in roles at AXA and the MAXIS network, gaining 19 years of senior management experience.

Butler joins as GEB’s director of global health and wellness, and will be responsible for leading the company’s growth ambitions.

He joins from MAXIS, where he served as vice president of global health and wellness.
