Texas Health Aetna, the joint venture between Texas Health Resources and Aetna, a CVS Health Co. (NYSE: CVS), announced the addition of Cory Scott as chief executive officer to its executive leadership team Feb. 25.

“Since the health plan launched in 2017, we have accelerated our efforts to bring innovative product and service offerings to employers and members in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” Genevieve Caruncho-Simpson, president and chief operating officer of Texas Health Aetna, said in a news release.

“Cory is the perfect addition to our team as he brings more than 20 years’ experience launching and growing insurance plans, including provider-affiliated plans. Cory’s vision, drive and performance focus, combined with his commitment to developing a lasting relationship with our clients, will ensure Texas Health Aetna continues to build on its market momentum,” Caruncho-Simpson said.

The company announcement said that Scott will drive Texas Health Aetna’s strategic direction and will also lead Aetna’s North Texas and Oklahoma regions.

Most recently, he was market head of sales and services for the Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi markets for Aetna, where he led both the middle market and small group segments.

“I’ve watched Texas Health Aetna expand at a rapid pace over the past few years, and it has been exciting to see the team bring something unique to North Texas,” Scott said in the news release. “I am excited to join the team as we ramp up our efforts in 2019 and build on the strong foundation that has already been set so we can continue our growth and adoption rates over the next year.”

Scott replaces Jeff Cook, who became regional president for Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico for Aetna.

Scott graduated from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
