A major Detroit health insurer has picked a new chief executive.[@@]
The insurer, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan, has concluded a search process that began in 2004 by selecting Daniel Loepp to be the company’s next president.
Loepp will succeed the current president, Richard Whitmer, when Whitmer retires in mid-2006, Michigan Blue says. Whitmer has been leading Michigan Blue, a nonprofit “insurer of last resort” that provides or administers health coverage for 4.7 million Michigan residents, for 17 years.
