DAS Health, a Tampa-based provider of IT and management services for the health care industry, has promoted Michelle Jaeger, the firm’s president, to CEO, effective immediately.

Jaeger joined the firm in 2021 as COO and will retain the title of president, according to a news release. She succeeds David Schlaifer, who founded the company in 2003. He will remain with the company as executive chair of the board.

"I am thrilled to be taking on this new role and am grateful to the DAS Health team for their support and trust in me," Jaeger states in the release. "Our company has achieved great success in recent years, and I am committed to building on that momentum and driving continued growth for DAS Health and our clients."

In her new role, Jaeger, the release states, will continue to oversee the company’s operations and strategic initiatives, working closely with the leadership team to further advance DAS Health's mission of providing innovative and effective health care solutions to clients across the United States.

"To say that I am excited to have Michelle officially take the helm of DAS Health is an understatement," Schlaifer states in the release. "It is rare that you can find someone who you know will not only protect a legacy, but substantially improve upon it. Michelle is that rare individual. Her leadership, expertise and commitment to our team and clients make her the perfect fit for this role, and I look forward to seeing the company thrive under her leadership."
