Michael Showalter, who has served as EVP since 2016, has been named CEO of Health e(fx). Michael is replacing former CEO and company co-founder, Andy Brown, who will remain with Health e(fx) as chairman of the board. This well-planned transition will occur over a series of weeks.
Why the change? Because our valued customers and partners have enabled us to grow significantly since our founding in 2010. We’re now the leading Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance and reporting provider, serving many of the nation’s largest employers and more than 17.6 million individuals. We’ve hit a point in our continuum of growth that requires a delineation between Board of Directors responsibilities from the day to day executive leadership and execution of the business. It’s time to take Health e(fx) to the next level.
Health e(fx)’s Board of Directors asked Michael to take on the CEO role. Michael has extensive healthcare leadership experience, including:
Michael is a founding board member of the National Business Group on Health’s Institute on Health Care Costs and Solutions and is a founding sponsor of the Global Knowledge Exchange Network, an organization that works to identify and promote global adoption of promising health system models. He also served on the Board of Directors for the Upper Midwest Chapter of the National MS Society.
We’re excited to announce that Michael Showalter is Health e(fx)’s new CEO. Michael is the best choice to lead Health e(fx) into the future. Not only does he have extensive experience in healthcare reform, he has a proven track record in leading growing companies while creating value for customers. Under Michael’s leadership, Health e(fx) will have even greater ability to meet changing health reform compliance needs.
