San Francisco Business Times

Company: Blue Shield of California is one of the state’s largest health insurers, with 3.3 million enrollees and $10 billion in 2012 revenue. Background: Markovich became president and CEO Jan. 1, after longtime chairman and CEO Bruce Bodaken retired at year-end. Previously, the 16-year Blue Shield veteran had held titles of president, chief operating officer and before that, senior vice president of the nonprofit health plan’s Large Group Business unit.

In the 1990s, he had an earlier stint at Blue Shield in product development, leaving in early 2000 to launch a short-lived consumer-driven health plan. He’s also worked at Definity Health and Booz Allen Hamilton.
