June 1, 2016 – Executive search firm Chasm Partners has recruited Carolyn Magill as chief executive officer of Remedy Partners.
Ms. Magill joins Remedy from Evolent Health, where she served as executive vice president of payer strategy and operations. Prior to that, she held various leadership positions at UnitedHealth Group’s Medicare and Medicaid businesses.
“Carolyn is the perfect fit for Remedy,” said Steve Wiggins, Remedy’s chairman. “She understands healthcare from the perspective of payers and providers, and is already a leader in the rapidly growing field of value-based payments. Remedy is an extraordinary platform for her to influence healthcare reform in the U.S.”
“We are pleased to see such a great outcome working closely with Steve Wiggins and Remedy’s search committee,” said Matt Dumas, managing partner of Chasm Partners. “We believe the timeliness and quality of this search leading to the placement of Carolyn Magill demonstrates our deep operating expertise and network in the healthcare technology space.”
Mr. Wiggins said that Chasm’s rapid candidate identification process generated an impressive list of highly experienced candidates of proven CEOs. “They also identified a few ‘up and coming’ leaders who were potential first time CEOs. Given our strong board and management team, with five former CEOs, Remedy was particularly open to Chasm’s novel recommendations.”
