Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has named a new president to lead its Wisconsin operations.
Paul Nobile, 47, has been Anthem’s regional vice president of sales and account management in Wisconsin for the past six years. He has 20 years of experience in the insurance industry.
Nobile has a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is a board member of the Alliance of Health Insurers, a member of the National Association of Health Underwriters and a member of the Wisconsin Association of Health Underwriters.
“It’s an honor to be asked to lead Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin,” said Nobile. “The past few years have been a time of rapid change and innovation in our industry, and that pace only continues to increase. I’m excited by this opportunity and look forward to working with employers, providers and individuals to simplify health care so they can focus on health.”
Nobile will replace Larry Schreiber, who was promoted to president of Anthem’s Empire BlueCross BlueShield health plan and now works in New York. Nobile has served as the interim president of the company’s Wisconsin operations since Schreiber was promoted.
“Paul (Nobile) is an outstanding leader and sales professional,” said Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem’s West Region and Specialty Business. “His positive attitude, enthusiasm and deep market experience in Wisconsin are true assets to our company and we’re excited to see him take on an expanded role as president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin.”
