One of the two locally run public exchanges that members of Congress see up close now has a boss. The board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange — the organization that oversees the state’s Maryland Health Connection exchange — has named Carolyn Quattrocki executive director for a term of one year.

Quattrocki has been the interim executive director since December, when Rebecca Pearce resigned. Pearce was one of several Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchange program heads who left after exchange enrollment systems got off to a bad start.

Quattrocki has a law degree from Yale University. From 2011 to date, she has been executive director of the Maryland Governor’s Office of Health Care Reform.

She has spent most of her career working for the government. At one point, she was a litigation associate in the Washington office of Arnold & Porter.
