Meet the Founders
Chief Executive Officer
Dylan de Waart
President & COO
Nick coordinates our partnerships with state and county governments, ensuring our program fits the needs of local communities.
Prior to founding Recover, he spent ten years working in addiction services, was a leader in the government practice at McKinsey & Company, advised multiple governors, and served in the White House. He is a graduate of Yale Law, UC Berkeley, community college, and a "last chance" high school.
Nick grew up watching his own family and friends struggle with addiction. He saw first-hand the need for innovative approaches to treatment and became determined to build a better way.
Dylan is responsible for developing our innovative telehealth platform, built to make addiction treatment and counseling accessible to all.
He previously founded an EdTech NGO, worked as a healthcare and tech consultant at McKinsey & Co., and served as chief-of-staff at a major healthcare system. He graduated from Harvard with a degree in economics and computer science.
Dylan and Nick met at McKinsey advising governments on managing the COVID-19 pandemic, and they discovered a common passion to help underserved communities through innovation and evidence-based solutions.
