The Rochester-based health plan that includes Univera Healthcare in Western New York has appointed Lisa White as Chief Administrative Officer and Executive Vice President. White, in her new role, has also joined the company’s executive leadership team.
White started her career at the Health Plan 31 years ago as a customer care representative. She’s since held a variety of positions throughout the company. White, for example, helped start the company’s first compliance department, focusing on government regulations, mandates and more.
She now oversees about a dozen departments whose primary responsibilities support the enterprise, including legal, audit, facilities, governance, strategy, corporate development, corporate communications, business resilience, risk management and ethics, privacy and compliance.
“Lisa brings years of experience and expertise overseeing complex administrative support functions, and we’re proud to have her join our executive leadership team,” said Jim Reed, health plan President and CEO.
“We’ve been lucky over the years to have Lisa at the helm, especially during COVID-19,” Reed added. “Lisa played a pivotal role in our organization’s response to the pandemic, helping us focus on supporting our members through challenging times.”
A graduate of Syracuse University, White earned her master’s degree from the New England College of Business and Finance.
