We're excited to announce that we’ve named our new president, Mark Van Elden. Mark is a Certified Public Accountant whose experience has been focused in non-profit and provider-owned health plans. Before joining the ACEC Life/Health Trust, Mark served as the chief financial officer and controller of a health plan serving over 450,000 members in southeast Texas. Mark also serves on the board of directors and is the finance committee chair of El Centro de Corazon, a Federally Qualified Health Center providing care to the medically underserved population in Houston.
Mark comes to us after a five-month search, during which time April Leonard stepped up to serve as interim CEO while continuing her role as chief marketing officer.
This is the time of year to reflect on our blessings, and we want all our members to know how grateful we are for each of you. We’re excited to serve you alongside Mark as we work to make the engineering industry the healthiest in the nation.
