Bright Horizon’s HR leader Dan Henry joins Limeade board of directors
Limeade, a corporate wellness technology company, welcomes Danroy “Dan” Henry, chief human resources officer of Bright Horizons, to its board of directors. Bright Horizons, a 16-time member of the Fortune Best Companies to Work For list, is a 26,000-employee market leader renowned for its commitment to employee well-being. Henry brings an exceptional blend of operations and human resources leadership experience to the board.
“I admire Limeade for its deep understanding of the challenges HR and Benefits face leaders in large companies. Limeade brings a strong perspective that individual improvement requires a company culture that supports employee well-being – plus Limeade technology ties together all of the silos that have emerged in HR,” said Henry, who’s been a vocal thought leader on corporate well-being. “Our own Bright Horizons well-being study connected unmanaged work-related stress with specific high-cost health problems. We know our solutions are performing at their best when clients are happy, and clients are happiest only when our employees bring their best selves to work.”
“Dan is mission-driven, brilliant and operationally excellent, so he’s an ideal board member for us,” said Limeade CEO Henry Albrecht, who started Limeade nearly 10 years ago to improve workplace well-being. “His extensive HR experience tackling the issues we’re solving gives us great insights into the customers we’ve sworn to serve.”
Henry brings over 25 years of leadership experience at global leaders including Pepsi, Reebok, Staples and Fleet Boston Financial – experience Limeade hopes translates to its more than 150 enterprise customers.
Henry, who joined Bright Horizons in 2004, leads the overall people strategy. Under his leadership, Bright Horizons received recognition from the Department of Labor, the U.S. Army, the Center for Companies that Care and Diversity Inc. The 100 Best Companies to Work For list by Fortune Magazine has honored the company 16 times. Bright Horizons has also been recognized as a Great Place to Work in every country it operates in.
Henry is also the past chairman of the Board of the Northeast Human Resources Association, and he served on the boards of the SHRM Foundation and Squash Busters.

He’s the co-founder and board chair of the non-profit, The DJ Dream Fund, which provides resources for children and young adults to participate in healthy lifestyles through sports, wellness and arts programs.
