He has more than 40 years of experience, including lead roles at CIGNA, United HealthCare and Provident Life & Accident, driving national account and local group sales, product development and growth. There aren't many who know how to inspire success and achieve it. There aren't any like him.

Sarah Martin

Vice President, Partner Solutions

"The connector"

Sarah oversees sales and account management for ASO account services in partnership with other Blue plans. She has also led our corporate customer experience and large employer product marketing divisions where she strategized and implemented consumer engagements. When it comes to bringing complexity down to earth, no one compares.

Caroline Jones

Sales Executive, National Account Sales

"The solver"

Caroline excels across the sales and service relationships she builds with partner plans and groups, because she understands the challenges they're designing for, as well as the needs of the employers and employees they serve — and how to solve for them.
