Former Michigan and Utah budget chief John Nixon has joined health information technology solutions provider CNSI as senior vice president, senior account executive and corporate strategy.
In this role, Nixon will take charge of state health care business initiatives to promote company growth and innovation. His experience in state government will serve him well in this position — he played a significant role in Michigan’s economic turnaround as the state’s director for the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget from 2011 to 2014.
Nixon also spent time as Utah’s state budget director overseeing a $11 billion budget.
“John brings a wealth of state government technology, management, and budget expertise, strategic thinking, and leadership to our growing team at CNSI,” said CNSI CEO Todd Stottlemyer. “With his deep experience in the operations of state government, John will play a key role as we work to help our clients find innovative ways to achieve their mission, enhance business performance, and improve healthcare outcomes.”
In his previous role, Nixon served as vice president for administrative services for the University of Utah. He was named Public Official of the Year in 2012 by Governing magazine.
Nixon stated his enthusiasm for his new role.
“I am very excited to join CNSI and am honored to have the opportunity to provide strategic direction to build on the company’s successes as we work to transform healthcare for the public sector,” he said.
