Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan this week continued to shuffle around its board of directors in preparation for the exit of its chief executive officer and president, naming Dr. Peter Burkart as its new chairman.
The Albany health insurer announced Tuesday that Burkart on July 1 will take the chairman seat from Dr. John Bennett.
Bennett on that date will succeed Dr. William Cromie as president and CEO.
Burkart, a hematologist with New York Oncology Hematology, previously served as CDPHP’s vice chairman. He joined the board in 2000.
CDPHP also announced that board trustee Dr. Gennaro Daniels was elected vice chairman. Dr. Anthony Marinello, the president of the CapitalCare Medical Group, was elected to a four-year term on the board.
