Senior Leadership Promotions Announced at MVP Health Care



MVP Health Care’s Board of Directors announced two senior leadership promotions intended to drive the organization’s ongoing transformation into a growth-oriented, consumer-focused, comprehensive health services company. Central to those changes, Denise Gonick will take on the expanded role of chief executive officer and director, joining the board as MVP’s first inside director in its history. Her focus will be on the vision and long-term strategy of the organization, while she continues to set the tone of its leadership culture.

In addition, MVP Chief Operating Officer Christopher Del Vecchio has been elevated to the broader executive position of president and chief operating officer.

“We are moving at a rapid pace to structure MVP for continued growth in this constantly changing health care industry and to ensure we remain laser-focused on the needs of our members and providers,” Gonick said.  “The challenges of today’s volatile health care climate — for providers, insurers, and individuals and families alike — make us more committed than ever to our mission of creating peace of mind for our members and to our vision of creating the healthiest communities.”

“Denise’s expertise and experience in health care leadership will be an excellent addition to an already strong board and will provide us with an even closer view into strategy and operations,” said MVP Board Chair Alan Goldberg. “These changes will enable her to more fully ensure MVP’s continued success.”

Del Vecchio will oversee all products and services MVP offers, including commercial, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as day-to-day operations, sales, marketing, and business development. He will also be responsible for the continued conversion of MVP’s technology platforms, analytics, and service capabilities to better serve members and providers and maximize the efficiency of the existing business model.

“Chris has brought a thoughtful management style and strategic, enterprise-wide planning capabilities to our leadership team,” said Gonick. “His role in this new structure will open up even more possibilities for us to prosper as a team, and as a company.”

“This is an exciting time for MVP,” Del Vecchio said. “These changes will support the work we’ve already begun to make health insurance more personal and to keep members at the center of all we do. Our mission-based strategy of improving the health of the communities we serve remains very important to all of us at MVP.”
