News the chief operating officer at Haven — the healthcare venture created by Amazon, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase & Co — is leaving comes as Walmart establishes itself as an entrepreneurial provider of employee health benefits.
CNBC reported that Haven chief operating officer Jack Stoddard is leaving after “just nine months into his new role.” Stoddard was a digital health advisor at Comcast for 10 months, according to his LinkedIn profile. He is leaving Haven “for personal reasons,” the CNBC report said.
Some medical care providers say Haven has been talking about them off and on over the last year about certain relationships. Haven couldn’t be reached for comment Friday about the status of its efforts.
