The benefits (and burden) of providing employee benefits continues to increase for employers. As VP of Strategic Solutions, Jim partners with clients and the Apex Strategic Solutions team to ensure employers fully utilize employee and claims data to identify health & wellness opportunities, deliver population-based health & wellness programs, and ensure employees have access to cost-effective medications. Through Apex’s HR Consulting and Communications experts, Jim also coordinates solutions that augment client HR team capabilities to meet their business objectives.
Jim has over 25 years of health care experience, primarily as an executive with Eli Lilly and Company. His experience navigating the relationship between pharmaceutical manufacturers, health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers brings unique perspectives on drug costs and creates opportunities for employers to reduce costs and enhance their pharmacy benefit. As an executive leading Lilly’s commercial operations teams, he has tremendous experience in data & analytics, organizational design, human resource support, marketing, communications, and strategic planning.
Jim lives in Carmel with his wife, Marci, and their two children. He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, watching Sci-Fi movies, and working hands-on home improvement projects. He and his family are avid open wheel racing fans, especially enjoying the month of May in Indy and traveling to watch IndyCar races. In the community, Jim volunteers his time with HOPE and the Crooked Creek Food Pantry.
