Rick Shinto and Penelope Kokkinides Welcome New Leadership

Recently, Medicare giant InnovaCare Health added three new leaders to the team. Offering Medicare Advantage Plans and other healthcare policies in Puerto Rico, InnovaCare Health has been a growing company under the leadership of CEO Rick Shinto and CAO Penelope Kokkinides. Due to growth, Rick Shinto chose to add three additional executives to the team to aid in the growth and transition of the company as they continue to develop programs for government related healthcare programs.

Jonathan Meyers, the Chief Actuary Officer, is one of the newest additions, having served as the Director of Actuarial Services. He also spent time working with Medicare and Medicaid for Horizon BCBS. Horizon is considered the largest organization for this in New Jersey. Additionally, Meyers spent time working with HealthCare Partners in New York, a Division of Heritage Medical Systems. At that time, Meyers contributed both as the CFO and as the Vice President of Managed Care.

Penelope Kokkinides had left the company and returned in 2015. When the announcement was made in 2016, the transition was still considered new and her position with the company had changed from the position she held prior to leaving the company. Acting now as the Chief Administrative Officer, Penelope was traveling a little less than she was prior, when she was acting as the CFO and the VP of Clinical Operations. Having a lot on her plate, Penelope was looking for other options, and ultimately ended up returning to work alongside Rick Shinto once again, according to HRMR Online.

Mike Sortino, another new addition has been named as the Chief Accounting Officer, and worked prior with Samsung Fire and Marine Insurance Company. He also served as the CFO of HCC Specialty, also known as Houston Casualty Company. Mike has more than 20 years of experience in the insurance marketplace, as well as having worked with reinsurance, he has a firm grasp for what these policies are about and why certain policies do not apply for all who may apply.

Each executive has been noted as having integrity and working with dignity to bring jobs to completion. Each individual has a background in a unique industry as well as unique gifts and talents that allow them to make a solid contribution to InnovaCare Health now and in the years to come.
