The National Business Coalition on Health is designed to help ensure that the perspective of 7,000 employers is represented in national health care issues. In doing so it aims solve health care problems for over 35 million employees nationwide.

And today it has a new leader.

Michael Thompson, a principal for PricewaterhouseCoopers, has been offered and accepted the position of President and CEO of the NBCH.Michael Thompson NBCH president

“Coalitions play a critical role as corporate benefit staff have limited resources, greater compliance burdens and higher performance and financial expectations,” Thompson said in a written statement. “Collective and collaborative efforts are required to develop and execute strategies in this rapidly changing environment. I look forward to leading the charge for NBCH and its members as our business coalitions, collectively, act as a national force to bring about meaningful change.”

Thompson is known for driving collaboration, which is a critical skill when dealing with the current health care climate in the United States. He participated on the steering board of the World Economic Forum’s “Working towards Wellness” initiative and co-founded the Private Exchange Evaluation Collaborative. Prior to joining PwC, Thompson served as an executive with diverse roles with Prudential Healthcare.

That collaborative nature in a rapidly changing health care environment is what colleagues such as Karen van Caulil, NBCH board chair and president and CEO, Florida Health Care Coalition look forward to most from his leadership tenure.

“Mike brings us more than 30 years of diverse and relevant experience and a clear passion and reputation for thought leadership, collaboration and making an impact,” Caulil said in a news release. “He has the ideal skill set and relationships with business and other key stakeholders to lead NBCH in this rapidly changing business environment. We look forward to working with him to build and leverage the collective strength of our member coalitions.”
