NASHVILLE, TN – Council Capital is pleased to announce the addition of Alan Poenitske as Executive Partner. “Alan’s extensive success building risk-based solutions that help healthcare payors to manage cost and improve clinical quality, along with his long-term relationships with members of our CEO Council, make Alan an excellent partner for Council.” said Grant Jackson, Managing Partner of Council. Alan has joined Council to focus on payor solutions – an area of growing significance in the healthcare sector.

Prior to joining Council, Alan served in various leadership roles at MedSolutions, eviCore and Evernorth (part of Cigna). During his tenure at eviCore, he helped to enable rapid growth and the successful management of eviCore’s risk-based business across nine different specialties, innovate new pricing models for payors and has spent a significant amount of time working in value-based care.

Over the next three years, eviCore grew to over $3.3 billion in revenue and over 5,000 employees when it was ultimately sold to Express Scripts for $3.6 billion.
