We’re about to learn who will be leading the healthcare ventures set up by Amazon, JPMorgan, and Berkshire Hathaway.
Back in January, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon announced a joint, non-profit healthcare venture they will be pursuing aimed at improving satisfaction and reducing costs for their U.S. employees. The announcement caused healthcare stocks to plummet.
At that point, very few details were released about what the tie-up would look like. But Buffett and Dimon told CNBC last week that they’d announce the new CEO within the next two weeks.
In the meantime, speculation has been brewing about who might be the person to step into the role. According to a report by Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes, the key attributes for the potential CEO should include the following:
Visionary and disruptive
Experience with business, clinical and policy sides of healthcare
Someone not too old, as they’re going to be leading the effort for five to 10 years
Preferably from a non-profit or private company
Based on public data and analysis, here are some of the candidates Bernstein thought would fit the role.
