Triple-S Makes Management Changes
SAN JUAN – Puerto Rico-based managed healthcare company Triple-S Management Corp. announced Friday several changes within its executive staff. With the retirement of Ramón Ruiz Comas, which was initially disclosed in mid-May, Roberto García Rodríguez has assumed the role of CEO.
García Rodríguez joined Triple-S in 2008 and has served as general counsel, corporate secretary and chief operating officer. As COO, he reported directly to Ruiz Comas, overseeing operational matters and spearheading the company’s ongoing, multi-year strategic transformation.
As part of the transformation, effective Jan. 11, Madeline Hernández Urquiza, who as president of the company’s Medicare Advantage operating subsidiary, will preside over the company’s two managed care units, with responsibility for the Medicare Advantage, Commercial and Medicaid businesses. Hernández Urquiza has held numerous positions in finance and operations at Triple-S, including chief risk officer for the Commercial and Medicaid businesses as well as executive vice president and vice president of Finance for the Medicaid business, over a 12 year span. Pablo Almodovar, who currently heads the Commercial and Medicaid businesses, will be leaving the company.
Juan José Román Jiménez will rejoin the company as chief financial officer. He was the company’s CFO for nearly a decade. He was part of the team that engineered Triple-S’ transition from a non-profit entity to a for-profit corporation, the company’s initial public offering, and three key acquisitions. He left Triple-S in July 2011 to help take transaction processing company EVERTEC Inc. public in April 2013. The company’s current CFO, Amilcar Jordan, will be leaving the company.
Finally, Carlos L. Rodríguez Ramos, who has been serving as general counsel on an interim basis since December 2013, will permanently fill the position.
