Corporate health and wellness company Keas announced $8 million in venture capital funding today, along with a new clients, partnerships and additions to its executive team.

The funding will be used for sales, marketing and platform development, says Keas CEO Josh Stevens. Along with the funding and new clients, which include Pandora, Valeant Pharmaceuticals and KLA-Tencor, the company is adding Fitbit, RunKeeper, LabCorp, GAIN Fitness and meQuilibrium to its platform.

Keas is a social platform where employees can create profiles, post health information and track and share their goals. “Think of it as Facebook for your health – much more Facebook, much less textbook,” says Stevens.

The firm also announced two additions to its executive team: Laura Tullman joins as VP of marketing and Marty Funk joins as VP of sales.

“Our goal is to have a platform that features the best of the rest of what’s out there in fitness, in mind and body, in stress management and in nutrition content and apps that are in the market,” says Stevens. “We can’t build all the best of those things but we can incorporate them so it’s convenient for the user to have everything in one profile.”
