Healthcare enterprise Centene Corporation has elected Jessica Blume to its board of directors. She was appointed to both the audit committee and the technology committee.

Previously, Blume held the position of vice chairman for Deloitte, where she was a partner until retirement in 2015. There she worked in a broad range of industries to transform business through the implementation of technology.

Michael Neidorff, Centene's chairman and chief executive officer, commented: "We are pleased to welcome Jessica Blume to our board of directors. Ms. Blume's career at Deloitte for more than 20 years brings a wealth of expertise to Centene. Her outstanding track record of growing businesses through the implementation of technology will add great value to our Board."

Blume added: "The healthcare industry is an important and challenging area today, given the need for effective solutions targeted to enabling high quality options for underserved populations.

Centene said that Blume will stand for re-election at the company's April 2018 annual meeting of stockholders.
