Jorge Stevenson, the chief financial officer (CFO) of Yuvo Health, has demonstrated a remarkable and unique trajectory in the corporate world, seamlessly blending experiences from corporate giants to startups and academia. His journey is a testament to his leadership skills, adaptability, and unwavering commitment to making a positive impact.

Before assuming his role as CFO at Yuvo Health, Jorge served in two notable roles; vice president of strategic finance at Bestow, a leading digital infrastructure startup revolutionizing the life insurance industry, and vice president of strategy for Prudential Financial, a powerhouse in the financial sector. This constant and consistent evolution confirms that Jorge can successfully navigate large and small organizations and thrive in dynamic environments.

Now, as CFO of Yuvo Health, an early-stage startup based in New York City, Jorge’s multifaceted background provides him with an edge that makes a tangible impact on both the company and the health care industry. Yuvo Health’s mission is to ensure that every community health center can provide compassionate care to their entire community. Jorge’s role in this dynamic environment involves creating solutions where none previously existed. His primary focus is on managing the company’s finances and ensuring its long- term success and in doing so, he works tirelessly to maintain stability and promote growth while engaging with internal and external stakeholders.

Jorge’s remarkable journey, however, extends beyond the corporate realm, as he also serves as an adjunct professor at New York University (NYU), where he imparts knowledge to graduate-level students. For him, teaching is not just a way of giving back to the community; it’s a fulfilling intellectual endeavor. His academic experiences have also enhanced his ability to communicate effectively and clarify complex ideas, making him an especially well-rounded asset to those he serves. His diverse experience, which includes roles as a board member, advisor, and consultant for multiple for profit and nonprofit organizations, showcases his ability to navigate the most challenging environments.

Jorge’s academic achievements are equally noteworthy. He holds an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, and a certificate in disruptive strategy from Harvard Business School. He earned his bachelor’s in business administration and economics from the prestigious Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. In recognition of his outstanding contributions, Jorge received the Hispanic Star Award during his tenure at Prudential and was featured for a week on the Prudential Times Square billboard. These accolades underscore his dedication to excellence and his commitment to representing the Hispanic community positively.

Jorge’s journey from finance and strategy leader to startup innovator, educator, and nonprofit supporter is an inspiring testament to his adaptability, leadership, and commitment to making a meaningful impact. As he continues to shape the healthcare industry, he pays tribute to the community by mentoring future leaders, serving as a beacon of inspiration for us all.
