Gain Life Appoints Dave Merrill as Managing Director | Business


Gain Life, a leading provider of insurance claims automation software, today announced the appointment of Dave Merrill as Managing Director.

“Dave’s expertise in cost containment, his passion for technology solutions and his extensive industry relationships make him the ideal candidate for Gain Life’s next stage of growth,” said Sean Eldridge, President of the board of directors and co-founder of Gain Life.

Gain Life’s Board of Directors selected Merrill based on its track record of building one of the largest cost containment companies in the commercial insurance industry. Merrill’s penchant for creating technology-driven cost-containment solutions, combined with its industry relationships, will be key to Gain Life’s continued success.

“Gain Life’s claims automation platform solves three of the industry’s biggest challenges: mitigating personnel issues by automating administrative and communication tasks, improving the identification risk through its automated claims monitoring and reducing claimant anxiety through an evidence-based app that supports every step of their claims journey,” Merrill said. “As soon as I saw what Gain Life’s platform could do and the results it delivers to clients, I knew this was the right opportunity for me. I look forward to building on the team’s success, continuing to drive cost savings for customers and a better claims experience for all parties.

Dave has dedicated his 30 year career to the insurance industry. He comes to Gain Life from CoventBridge, where Dave most recently served as CEO and remains Deputy Chairman of the Board. Previously, Dave founded and ran The Merrill Group, which became EMSI/ICS Merrill, then merged with GlobalOptions to become CoventBridge.

Dave is the proud father of five children. He is active in his church and in the Jacksonville community. Dave also enjoys supporting the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Boston Red Sox.
