Employee Benefit Management Services names CFO and VP

Employee Benefit Management Services (EBMS), a Montana-based third-party administrator of self-funded health plans, has appointed Alex Schott as chief financial officer and Matt Johnson as corporate counsel and vice president of legal.

Schott will lead the company's financial strategy teams. He joins from BioScrip, where he served as senior vice president of strategic operations and interim chief accounting officer.

"Alex’s accomplishments demonstrate a commitment to excellence in strategic leadership and technical acumen,” said Kevin Larson, EBMS president. “His expertise in building, growing and scaling financial and accounting functions in healthcare organisations will be an asset to EBMS as we continue to expand our products and services to contain costs, improve care and simplify the benefit journey."

Johnson joins from Aetna, where he served as the primary counsel to American Health Holdings and co-counsel to Meritain Health.

“Matt will be a great addition to the legal and leadership team in partnership with our clients, brokers and vendors as we work together to change the way healthcare is purchased and delivered,” said Melissa Lyon, executive vice president.
