Phil Kalin Named CEO Finalist for Pinnacol Assurance

Phil Kalin, Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) President & CEO, has been named a finalist for CEO of Pinnacol Assurance.  Pinnacol’s board of directors is required by Colorado statute to publicly identify any finalist for two weeks prior to officially offering the position. The two week period begins today. 

Kalin was CIVHC’s first full time leader and under his guidance over the last four years, CIVHC has grown from an organization of three employees to 14. During his tenure, CIVHC developed and launched the Colorado All Payer Claims Database, and has made significant strides in supporting payment reform and delivery system redesign. Should he be offered and accept the CEO position with Pinnacol, his leadership will be greatly missed.

“While we would be sorry to lose Phil, Pinnacol is a wonderful Colorado company and we are thrilled that he is a finalist for this role,” stated Barbara Ryan, Ph.D, CIVHC Board Chairperson. “They would be most fortunate to have such a talented leader who has demonstrated such dedication to the welfare of all Coloradans.”

During this two week period and beyond, the board will develop a strategy to ensure a smooth transition and the continued success of CIVHC.  “Fortunately we have an extremely talented and dedicated team who we are confident will build on the commitment to excellence and innovation that has made CIVHC a vibrant and thriving organization,” said Ryan.
