The Board of Directors of TriZetto Corporation (“TriZetto”) today announced a reorganization of the leadership team. These management changes will further enable TriZetto to execute effectively on its strategic priority to provide clients with information solutions that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the business of healthcare. Trace Devanny will be leaving the company, effective immediately, to pursue other opportunities. An executive search is underway for a permanent Chief Executive Officer.
As part of these changes, Vicky Gregg, a key member of TriZetto’s Board of Directors since 2008, will assume the role of Non-Executive Chair and will actively support the company’s leadership team. Ms. Gregg has over 35 years of experience in diverse healthcare environments including clinical care, hospital administration, long-term care, and healthcare benefits and financing. She was previously Chief Executive Officer of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, and has spent time on the boards of directors of numerous healthcare companies, including serving as the Chair of the Board of Directors of America’s Health Insurance Plans.
Jude Dieterman, who currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of TriZetto, has been appointed to the newly-created role of President. In this capacity, he will serve as the principle executive officer assuming day-to-day operational responsibilities for all aspects of the business. Mr. Dieterman has been with TriZetto for two years, and prior to that held a variety of executive positions over an eight-year period at Cerner Corporation, a global healthcare IT company. Before joining Cerner, Mr. Dieterman was President and Chief Operating Officer of eScout, an ASP in the banking business, and President and Chief Operating Officer of VTech Industries, where he founded and implemented VTech’s corporate Internet division in the late 1990s.
“I am thrilled to support Jude in his new role and have complete confidence in TriZetto’s leadership team as we enter this next chapter for the company,” said Ms. Gregg. “I look forward to drawing on my industry and client experience to optimize the world-class TriZetto solutions that help health plans, TPAs, health systems and physicians increase efficiency, improve the cost and quality of care, and succeed in the retail healthcare market.”
“Today’s announcement represents an opportunity to renew TriZetto’s focus on our clients and our core business, as we continue to invest in our employees and quality initiatives,” said Mr. Dieterman. “Working together with TriZetto’s talented employees, I am confident that we can execute effectively and drive the company toward greater long-term growth and continue to deliver leading solutions and service to our valuable clients.”
“It has been rewarding to be part of the TriZetto team for the past two and a half years,” said Mr. Devanny. “I am proud that our collective efforts have helped advance our strategy while also enhancing our partnership with our clients. As I move onto the next stage in my career, I trust that this leadership team is fully committed to delivering leading healthcare solutions for our clients.”
