Teachers Health Trust has appointed Gary Earl as the new CEO for the Teachers Health Trust.

For the past 35 years, Gary Earl has dedicated his energy and passion to the subject of health. He utilizes the perspective of the study, creation and demonstration of solutions relating to conditions, cultures, communities and economics. He is a national leader in the effort to refocus the traditional dialogue of managing costs and treating diseases to uncovering and addressing the social and environmental effects on health. Mr. Earl joined the Teachers Health Trust after being the Vice President and Corporate Health & Well-being Ambassador of Anthem BC&BS. He is deeply dedicated and committed to expanding the dialogue and agenda of health and cultural awareness and improvement on a local, national and global level. Prior to his time with Anthem, Mr. Earl worked in the field of well-being, social science and systems-engineering as Senior Vice President of CIGNA, where he co-founded CIGNA’s Communities of Health Group for the explicit purpose of creating a legacy of improvement to individuals, companies and communities alike.

“I am honored, humbled and privileged to have been awarded this extraordinary opportunity to serve each and every one of our valued members and partners through this important role. As a seasoned veteran and leader in innovative, impactful health and well-being improvement missions, I am delighted to be coming back home to Southern Nevada. My goals and intentions are ambitious, as the needs are great, however I am completely convinced that together we can be more than successful, we can be significant.” Gary said talking to the Board of Trustees when the offer was extended to become the new CEO for the Teachers Health Trust.

Preceding Mr. Earl’s tenure as a nationally recognized corporate health plan innovator and thought-leader, Mr. Earl was well-known for his creative and dynamic leadership as the Corporate Vice President of Benefits and Productivity for Las Vegas’s Caesars Entertainment, where he forged the imaginative and successful design and implementation of a highly effective holistic health, productivity and economic strategy.

"By bringing in a seasoned healthcare veteran, we will continue to achieve positive results within the Teachers Health Trust”, said Mike Steinbrink, President of the Teachers Health Trust Board of Trustees. “Change is never easy, but in order to become a sophisticated and innovative leader in healthcare, the board believes that Gary will be able to provide the vision and leadership to realize the full capability of a medical home model. Gary will be the catalyst in transforming the healthcare we provide for our teachers and helping our community of teachers become healthier than ever before.”
