Senior Leadership Changes at Coverys Announced
January 9, 2019by
Effective March 31, 2019, Mary Ursul will step back as the executive vice president at Coverys. Lynnette Matza, CEO and president of PPIC, a Coverys company, will succeed Ursul and assumed the role of executive vice president on Jan. 1, 2019, to ensure an orderly transition.
Ursul began her career with Coverys in 2006 holding a number of positions during her tenure, most recently overseeing Coverys’ Med-IQ operations and the coordination of the companies within the Coverys Strategic Healthcare Alliance. She will be leaving her full-time position, but will continue to work with the Coverys Community Healthcare Foundation as well as on special projects.
“Mary has always been willing to step in and take on any challenge that has come her way. She does so with a keen eye on business operations, but also with a focus on the people including mentoring many of our leadership members,” said Gregg Hanson, CEO and president of Coverys. “Mary’s time with Coverys has been instrumental to the success of MHAIC and WCC as well as their subsequent transition to the Coverys family.”
Lynnette Matza will transition from CEO and president of PPIC to serve as executive vice president, oversee Med-IQ operations, and manage the Coverys Strategic Healthcare Alliance relationships.
“It is crucial to have strong leadership to run the day-to-day operations and to ensure all subsidiaries are aligning our entities’ goals and aspirations,” said Hanson. “We are pleased to have Lynnette transition into this new role, as her financial acumen and business operational knowledge of Coverys will be of great value.”
Matza joined PPIC in 1988 as controller. During her tenure with PPIC, Matza served as vice president of finance, CFO and senior vice president, and president and chief executive officer. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Nebraska Society of Certified Public Accountants, and graduated with high distinction from the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science in business administration with an emphasis in accounting.
