Leadership Switch at Kilo Health: Zygimantas Surintas as CEO, Tadas Burgaila Leads Development

Apr 19

As we’re entering an exciting new chapter of business growth and leadership, it’s the perfect time to catch up on the latest changes in our team and where we’re headed next.

Dive in and get to know our new CEO of Kilo Health, Zygimantas Surintas, and find out what’s next for our co-founder, Tadas Burgaila, who’s been at the wheel for more than 10 years.

New leadership team

Yes, our company will now have a new leader to admire, so, let’s not remain strangers. Consider this blog post a virtual handshake to introduce you to our new CEO.

Zygimantas Surintas, with over 16 years of experience managing the skies of aviation as CEO and board member of SmartLynx Airlines, a subsidiary of Avia Solutions Group, has joined Kilo Health as its Chief Executive Officer and board member. In his new role, he will oversee the management of the company group, product development, and investments.

Alongside our new CEO, Rita Janusauskaite has also joined our team as the Chief Operating Officer of Kilo Health. Rita comes with an impressive background, having led teams at Studio Moderna, Kesko Senukai Digital, and CCC Group. We’re excited to have her on board!

“Surintas and Janusauskaite will undoubtedly contribute to the further implementation of the company’s mission and strategic directions. I believe that new business partners will give Kilo Health the necessary fresh energy and inspiration to move forward,” says Burgaila.

Expanding to new markets and focusing on new products

Our co-founder Tadas Burgaila, who’s been the guiding light and cornerstone of our company for a decade, isn’t going anywhere either. Instead, he’s shifting gears to focus on what he does best.

Burgaila will be pouring all his energy into the development and market expansion of our new health tech products as he takes on the role of Head of the Growth department. Additionally, he will continue to serve as the Executive Chairman of the Board of Kilo Health.

“Over the last five years, the Kilo Health group of companies has grown rapidly and has become the second fastest-growing company in Europe without any additional external investments. With this rapid growth came challenges; managing existing processes and resources became necessary. With Zygimantas Surintas joining us, I believe we’ll manage health technology startups even more effectively, and this will enable me to focus solely on developing new products,” explains Burgaila.

Prioritizing growth with efficiency is the key

The last 12 months were a profitable year for the company. However, according to the new CEO of Kilo Health, Zygimantas Surintas, there has been a noticeable slowdown in income growth. Hence, increasing efficiency is now a top priority.

“Kilo Health is a non-traditional startup that has been profitable since day one. To ensure continued growth, expand our product range, and enter new markets, we plan to implement new efficiency principles — actively integrating artificial intelligence and reducing hierarchy levels. These changes will help the group of companies transition to a new stage of maturity and adapt to the post-COVID competitive landscape,” says the CEO of Kilo Health.

The new CEO believes in keeping Kilo Health’s workplace the best in Lithuania, all while sticking to our principles of working smart and steady.

The dawn of a new era at Kilo Health is here, and we’re excited to see where this fresh journey will take us.
