Our Story

Lumity co-founder Tariq Hilaly was deeply familiar with the employer side of healthcare, and the lack of visibility into the second largest operational expense drove him bananas.

Then, in 2014, Tariq and his friend Senthil Nagarajan were both dealing with serious healthcare issues in their families. And they experienced how complicated it was to navigate health insurance from the employee side.

So they channeled their frustration into founding a new company that provides an end-to-end benefits solution. While Lumity leverages data to ensure employers get a fair group health plan rate, our licensed health insurance advocates ensure your people have better outcomes.

Leadership Team

Tariq Hilaly

At Tariq’s previous company Motif Investing, he had first-hand experience making company benefits decisions and it was, frustratingly, a lot like everyone else’s; working with insurance brokers and taking their recommendations at face value. The total lack of visibility had him wondering what value he and his employees were getting for their premiums and why they always seemed to expect a rise in costs year to year. When his wife became seriously ill, he also learned the headache of making important healthcare decisions. Tariq co-founded Lumity to bring transparency and accountability to the benefits ecosystem, and to build an experience that benefits both employer and employee.

Senthil Nagarajan

After experiencing a major illness in his family, Senthil partnered with his co-founder and friend from business school Tariq Hilaly, and the two decided to make a change in the benefits industry. As chief of operations, Senthil is in charge of scaling Lumity’s back-end services, including aspects of automating processes and data streams.
