Lisa Im

Chief Executive Officer and Board Chair

As the CEO and Board Chair of Performant Financial Corporation, I am responsible for the growth of this business, satisfaction of our clients, excellence of this organization, and driving shareholder value.  Our goal is to innovate through technology, people and process to drive unparalleled value to clients above all competitors.  I have over 30 years of business experience including a leadership background in consumer product goods companies, Kraft and BestFoods, where consumers hire and fire companies and brands based on each experience.  Ultimately, the entire view of our brand boils down to each experience—we want every experience of the client or consumer to lead them back to us.  This is the kind of philosophy by which we go to market—clients and consumers choose us because we give them the best experience in the market.  We believe in driving success for our clients, excellence in our organization, innovating through technology, people, and process.  I am grateful to our clients who let us serve them as partners, and to our employees who bring their best to Performant every day.

Jeff Haughton

Chief Operating Officer

As the Chief Operating Officer, I am responsible for growing revenue and achieving operational excellence across our businesses.  Our objective is to provide best in class solutions that drive measurable value to our clients while strengthening their relationships with their customers.  We believe that innovating differentiated services across our client base will help us diversify and grow revenues with both current and new clients in existing and new markets.  We focus on enhancing our technology utilization to continually improve results and efficiency for our clients.  All of my work experience while at Goldman Sachs, and at FT Partners has centered on execution and delivering results which is our focus at Performant.  I’ve applied that experience to our objectives here at Performant since July of 2014.

Hakan Orvell

Chief Financial Officer

As the Chief Financial Officer, I oversee all of Performant’s accounting and financial reporting, financial planning and analysis, tax, treasury, and investor relations functions.  My background includes a variety of industries and various financial functions for companies who operate in both the US and internationally.  I joined the company in 2007 when it was private and played a key role in the IPO in 2012.  Since then, my focus also includes proficiency with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, all aspects of our internal control systems, and actively being a part of an executive team whose goals are aligned to growing company value. My scope also includes identification of key risks and design of mitigating controls, documentation of principle procedures and performing pre-audit testing to evaluate existing compliance with all required standards.  And if that weren’t exciting enough, I have a great appreciation for the global diversity of people and cultures, and enjoy traveling to foreign countries when I’m not reading up on the latest SEC or accounting changes.

Hal Leach

Chief Compliance Officer and President of Performant Recovery

My role as Chief Compliance Officer is unique in that I was formerly the Chief Operating Officer.  As a result, I understand how important and intricate compliance is in all of the activities and processes of our business.  During my 35 years with Performant, I’ve focused on operations strategy and compliance management.  In over the three decades, as regulations have changed both at the Federal and state levels, my focus has been to ensure that our organization lives and breathes within those requirements. I am grateful that my deep experience gives me the chance to leverage synergies, engineer logistics, and provides compliance oversight to continuously improve operations across all products, services, and industries.

Simeon Kohl

Vice President and General Manager of Healthcare

Healthcare is an exciting growth avenue for Performant.  Performant’s healthcare services and products are differentiated through our integrity based analytics platform in which we design solutions that are unique to our clients. Our goal is to achieve long-term growth through alignment of the company’s program integrity assets to best serve our public and private sector healthcare clients. Healthcare is a newer and exciting growth avenue for Performant. We entered the healthcare market in 2005 with a demonstration project for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.  We then became one of the auditors of the first-ever nationwide Medicare Recovery Audit Contract.  In 2016, I became the head of Performant’s Healthcare initiatives and we re-engineered the organization to better facilitate our expansion into the commercial healthcare market where we can offer program integrity services to drive value to our commercial clients.  I joined Performant in 2012, and bring more than 20 years of executive management experience to our growth strategy. Most recently I led a company that provided integrity-based analytic solutions across a myriad of different industries.  I also have an extensive background in healthcare cost containment and related services including strategic direction and operational oversight to large healthcare audit and FWA engagements.
