For a company to grow; there should be a leadership team dedicated to meeting its goals. This team includes a CEO and CAO with experience in the respective niche. This reality is the reason InnovaCare Health has assembled a team led by CEO Rick Shinto and CAO Penelope Kokkinides. By leading from the front, the two are working hard to ensure that the company meets its entire objectives. This dedication is more important in an industry where competition grows every day, and new service providers emerge with new solutions.
The CEO’s input
There is no doubt that the arrival of Dr. Rick Shinto has brought good tidings to Innovacare Health. He doubles up as the head of the company’s subsidiaries in Puerto Rico. His role in steering these subsidiaries is through managing the operation of MMM Holdings, a company that takes care of more than 250,000 lives. As if that is not overwhelming already, he is actively involved in the daily running of the company.
Before taking over the top position, he was the head of NAMM for about five years. He also held a leadership position at Cal Optima and Med Partners. He is also reported to have worked at Medical Pathway Management, a company based in California.
Shinto’s education traces back to his college days at the University of California. He graduated with a medical degree before heading to other institutions such as the University of Redlands and the New York State University to further his studies. In addition to that, he worked at a pulmonologist, a position that he held after serving as an intern in Southern California before ending up at InnovaCare Health.
The game-changing CAO
Since her arrival in June 2015, Penelope Kokkinides has overseen drastic changes in the management style. Being the chief administrative officer, she has to manage significant operations at the company on a daily basis. This work has not been difficult for her because of her vast experience. For over twenty years, she has worked in various companies with significant influence besides InnovaCare Health. For instance, she served as Aveta Inc., AmeriChoice, and Touchstone Health. This career advancement came after her graduation from the New York University and a further degree in Alcohol and substance abuse at Columbia University of Public Health.
