Intermountain insurer SelectHealth names new CEO

Intermountain Healthcare on Thursday named Marti Lolli as president and CEO of the Salt Lake City-based hospital system’s SelectHealth health insurance plan.

Lolli will assume the role in July, and succeed interim CEO Bob White, who had been serving in the role since January. White is the vice president and chief operating officer of the not-for-profit insurer.

“Marti is a mission-driven individual with extensive experience in driving growth across integrated delivery system environments,” Dr. Marc Harrison, president and CEO of Intermountain Healthcare, said in a statement. “She is an innovative leader with a strategic mindset and a strong history of building high-performing teams—and shares our commitment to improving the health of our local communities.”

Lolli comes to SelectHealth from Priority Health, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based insurer where she worked for 21 years, most recently serving as chief marketing officer and senior vice president of consumer and government markets. In a release, SelectHealth noted that Priority Health is likewise part of an integrated delivery system with about 1 million members.

Lolli earned a master’s degree in business administration from Grand Valley State University, and completed her undergraduate degree in political economy and English at Hillsdale College. Compensation terms were not disclosed.

Her appointment comes after former CEO Mike Cotton resigned from his post in January, just two months after he took on the role at the not-for-profit insurer. At the time of the announcement, Cotton said his leaving was a “difficult decision” made due to family reasons. SelectHealth’s leadership change also comes after Intermountain scrapped its merger with Sanford Health, after then-Sanford CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft falsely claimed that he didn’t need to wear a mask because he couldn’t transmit COVID-19 after contracting the virus.
