UPMC Insurance Services Division’s executive leaders are respected and invaluable in the workplace, but many of them agree that their greatest satisfaction comes when they make a difference outside the office. They share industry expertise and thought leadership by serving as board members, donating their personal time and monetary resources, rallying volunteers, and organizing and hosting major fundraising campaigns. They are proud to represent UPMC Insurance Services Division and UPMC Health Plan as they embody the values of the organizations they serve.
Our leaders have personal and professional connections to dozens of nonprofits and community organizations. Each organization’s focus is unique but equally as important as the others: community development, health awareness, equal opportunity and justice for underserved socioeconomic groups, cultural interests, and education improvement.
Here are a few spotlights:
