PAT GERAGHTY

PRESIDENT & CEO, GUIDEWELL AND FLORIDA BLUE, JACKSONVILLE

GuideWell is the holding company for Florida Blue. The company is among the largest health insurers in the country, with $19 billion in revenue. “Across the state,” Geraghty says, “we are creating and expanding ‘value-based’ arrangements to lower annual increases and more directly link payments to quality and health outcome measures of our members.”

EDUCATION Colgate University (BA)
ALTERNATE CAREER Early in life I wanted to run for office and pursue a political track.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I find great relaxation in taking a basketball and challenging myself to make as many foul shots and three pointers as possible. (I no longer have the knees to run in competitive games.)
FAVORITE VACATION My favorite place on earth is Ravello, Italy. The views, food and pace of life are so completely different and refreshing.
