Clover Health Hires New CFO as Firm Aims to Improve Efficiencies, Lower Costs

Medicare Advantage-focused startup Clover Health, which continues to expand its footprint and gain enrollees despite questions about its profitability, will soon have a new chief financial officer. According to a May 25 press release, Scott Leffler will join Clover in August after serving as CFO and treasurer of Sotera Health, where he oversaw the company’s global finance, procurement and IT organizations.

Leffler’s hiring follows several key additions to the company’s management team this year. During the first quarter, Clover Health appointed Conrad Wai as chief technology officer and Joseph Martin as general counsel. And in May, the company hired Aric Sharp as CEO of value-based care. The news of Leffler’s appointment comes after Clover Health spent more than 10 months seeking a replacement for Joe Wagner, who left the company in August 2021 for personal reasons.
