Kings­dale steps down as Mass. Con­nec­tor chief; Shor steps in

Modern Healthcare - - Late News -

Mas­sachusetts Health Con­nec­tor Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Jon Kings­dale an­nounced he will step down from his lead­er­ship post on June 4. Kings­dale, whose agency is re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing and reg­u­lat­ing Mas­sachusetts’ health in­sur­ance ex­change, has led the Con­nec­tor since its in­cep­tion in 2006. “I write to in­form you of my de­ci­sion to leave the Con­nec­tor,” Kings­dale said in a let­ter to the agency’s board. “Af­ter four years at the helm, I have de­cided to seek new chal­lenges.” A spokesman for the Con­nec­tor squelched spec­u­la­tion that Kings­dale would take a lead­er­ship po­si­tion in the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion. Glen Shor, Mas­sachusetts’ as­sis­tant sec­re­tary for health­care pol­icy, has been ap­pointed to take over lead­er­ship of the Con­nec­tor, the spokesman, Dick Pow­ers, con­firmed.

Kings­dale says he will leave his Mass. Con­nec­tor post in June.
