Intermountain Healthcare named Marti Lolli on Thursday as president and CEO of the Salt Lake City-based hospital system’s SelectHealth health insurance plan.
Lolli will take over the role in July, and succeed interim CEO Bob White, who has been in the role since January. White is the vice president and chief operating officer of the nonprofit insurer.
“Tuesday is a missionary individual with extensive experience in growing growth in the integrated delivery system environment,” said in a statement Dr. Marc Harrison, president and CEO of Intermountain Healthcare. “He is an innovative leader with a strategic mindset and a strong history of building successful teams – and sharing our commitment to improving the health of our local communities.”
Lolli comes to SelectHealth from Priority Health, an insurer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he has worked for 21 years, most recently serving as head of marketing and senior vice president of consumer and government markets. In a statement, SelectHealth noted that Priority Health is part of an integrated delivery system with approximately 1 million members.
Lolli earned a master’s degree in business administration from Grand Valley State University, and completed her bachelor’s degree in political economy and English at Hillsdale College. The terms of compensation have not been disclosed.
His appointment comes after former CEO Mike Cotton resigned from his post in January, just two months after taking on the role of nonprofit insurer. At the time of the announcement, Cotton said his departure was a “difficult decision” made for family reasons. SelectHealth’s leadership change comes even after Intermountain abandoned its merger with Sanford Health, later then CEO of Sanford, Kelby Krabbenhoft he falsely stated that he did not need to put on a mask because he could not transmit COVID-19 after contracting the virus.
