News : MNsure Taps Insider to Replace Departing CEO Scott Leitz
St. Paul, MN, USA, May 4, 2015 -- Leadership at the top of MNsure is in flux with word Monday that Chief Executive Scott Leitz is resigning.
Unlike the crisis atmosphere that surrounded Leitz’s arrival in December 2013, MNsure is now in a period of relative stability, Leitz told reporters Monday.
He’s leaving for a job with a nonprofit group that conducts research on health care cost trends, and will be replaced on an interim basis by Allison O’Toole, MNsure’s deputy director for external affairs.
Two members of the seven-person MNsure board see their terms expire Tuesday, with replacements not expected for weeks. Brian Beutner, the MNsure board chairman, said O’Toole and the remaining board members will provide sufficient continuity.
"I don’t see any issues," said Beutner, who is one of the directors leaving the board. "It’s very natural for a start-up to seek different leadership at different stages of the organization."
