We’re making good on our promise to provide a smarter platform, a better experience, and a higher standard. PBMs and plans across the country are now experiencing what we call “PBM Awesome,” and demand for our solutions is on the rise.
To continue to enhance and evolve our strategic vision, while maintaining the high levels of client service that Abarca is known for, we are making the following organizational changes.
Effective immediately, Javier Gonzalez, Pharm.D., will serve as the company’s Chief Growth Officer. In this role, Gonzalez will direct our go-to-market and customer value creation strategies, including pharmacy and rebate trend management strategies, and data analytics. He will also be responsible for deepening our relationships with customers and partners, leading the company’s business development efforts. An accomplished managed care executive and 20-year veteran of the PBM industry, Javier has been Abarca’s Chief Operating Officer since 2016.
“Javier not only understands Abarca’s unique and powerful culture, but he also has an innate sense of where the healthcare and PBM industries are going,” said Jason Borschow, President & CEO at Abarca. “We are all very excited about his leadership and vision for the future.”
As part of this reorganization, Adriana Ramirez, Esq. will assume the role of Chief Operating Officer, overseeing the various business units responsible for developing and delivering PBM products and services to Abarca’s clients. Ramirez has been with the company since 2013 and has served numerous roles, the most recent, Chief Legal & Compliance Officer and VP of Client Services.
