Health insurer Centene has revealed several organizational changes effective Jan. 1, 2019 in a move aimed at enhancing its growth and international presence.

The company has recently appointed Matthew Snyder as senior vice president, internal audit, compliance and risk management, reporting to Michael Neidorff, chairman and CEO of Centene. Snyder was most recently a partner at KPMG.

"At Centene, ensuring a culture founded on ethics and compliance is a top priority. Matt's healthcare industry experience focused on global risk dynamics, operational excellence and leading practices will continue to enhance Centene's internal audit, compliance and risk functions as the company continues to grow," said Neidorff.

Centene said that it will be undertaking a search for a senior executive who will be responsible for assisting in the development of its international business. The new hire will report to Brent Layton, executive vice president & chief development officer.

Meanwhile, Layton, who leads domestic and international business development, will also lead the international operations.

Christopher Bowers, executive vice president, markets, will continue to lead the health plan market operations.

Finally, Shannon Bagley - SVP human resources, Mark Brooks - EVP and chief information officer, and Jeffrey Schwaneke - EVP & chief financial officer, will together lead Centene Forward, an internal initiative of the insurer, following the retirement of Cynthia Brinkley in Feb. 2019.
