Welcome Janet Widmann
On behalf of Rock Health, I’m very pleased to announce that Janet Widmann has joined Rock Health’s Board of Directors. We’ve admired Janet’s dedication to transforming healthcare for quite some time. In addition to her results-oriented track record, she is also passionate about changing gender status quo in leadership positions.
Janet is the former Executive Vice President at Blue Shield of California, where she held overall P & L responsibility for the company’s $13.5B in annual revenue and its 3.5M members. During her tenure, Janet led unprecedented organic membership and revenue growth totaling over 1M members.
Before joining Blue Shield, Janet held positions at several venture-backed, for-profit, and not-for-profit companies, including Health Net in the areas of marketing, operations, and sales, and as the Chief Operations Officer of the company’s dental and vision subsidiaries.
She is also the founder of Blue Shield’s Women Lead to Excellence (WL2X) program, devoted to transforming the organization into one that values diversity and inclusiveness by exploring ways to better develop women for leadership. She is a member of the board of Avista Corporation (NYSE: AVA), a publicly traded utilities company spanning the Pacific Northwest.
Janet joins Halle Tecco, Dr. Nate Gross, Linda Avey, and myself on the board. Together we’re working to support the Rock Health team and the company’s mission: to make healthcare massively better for every human being.
