Mr. Jarm has served at the helm of the organizations since Jan. 30. Phil Mazanec, COO of The Center for Health Affairs and Champs Healthcare, will take over as interim president and CEO. Mr. Mazanec has worked at The Center for Health Affairs since 1979, when he joined as director of pension services.
