SAN JUAN — Jim O’Drobinak, the chief executive officer and chairman of MCS Healthcare Holdings LLC, announced Tuesday that health insurer MCS has appointed José B. Carrión III as the president of MCS Healthcare Holdings and board member of MCS Life Insurance Co. and MCS General Insurance Agency.
Carrión, who most recently served as chairman of the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico has more than 25 years of experience in the insurance industry.
“MCS is honored to have José Carrión join our team. Given his impressive experience in the areas of business development, insurance and government affairs, I am confident that Mr. Carrión will be an invaluable addition to our Executive team as President of MCS Holdings, LLC,” O’Drobinak said in a press release. “José comes to MCS to help expand our business, both geographically and by lines of business. His extensive leadership expertise in dealing with business clients and prospects, corporate shareholders, local and federal public officials and the media, perfectly suits our goals and needs.”
Carrión earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the College of Insurance, now St. John’s University.
Among the industry experience highlighted by the MCS media release were that Carrión served as senior vice president of AON Risk Services of Puerto Rico from 1995 to 2000, and as its president from 2000 to 2001. He also was co-founder and president of Carrión, Laffitte & Casellas Inc. from 2001 until the company was acquired by HUB international in 2012. Currently, Carrión serves on several local boards, including Advent Morro, cyber security firm GM Group and IPPR.
“I would like to thank Jim and the Board for the opportunity and the vote of confidence. I’m honored to join over 2,000 of my MCS colleagues who work tirelessly every day to bring excellence in health care to the people of Puerto Rico. I look forward to expanding the MCS footprint throughout Puerto Rico and ultimately into the mainland,” Carrión said in the release.
