Humana Hires Brown To Lead California Medicare Operations

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies, announced it has hired Jim Brown as the California Market President for Senior Products.

A 20-year veteran in the health insurance industry, Brown will be responsible for oversight of Humana’s Medicare HMO and PPO health plans, prescription drug plan, and Medicare supplement policies offered to those eligible for Medicare in California. Humana has approximately 369,000 Medicare members in California.

A native of California, Brown will be based in Humana’s Irvine market office and will report directly to Mark El-Tawil, Western Division Leader.

“Humana is committed to growing its presence in California. This is a newly created position so we were looking for someone with strong ties to the region,” said El-Tawil. “With more than 20 years in the industry, Jim’s ability to build strong relationships with physicians and hospitals and his proven leadership skills will be instrumental to our success as we continue to expand our senior product portfolio in California.”

Prior to joining Humana, Brown served as the Senior Vice President at AppleCare Medical Management, an Optum/United Health Group affiliate consisting of six companies including two independent practice associations (IPA), a staff model medical group, an accountable care organization, a management company and a Medicare broker services group. Previous to that, Brown was the Chief Operating Officer at L.A. Care Health Plan.

Brown holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and economics from the University of California - Davis, a master’s degree in business administration from the San Francisco State University and a master’s degree in public health from the University of California - Los Angeles.
