LexisNexis Special Services has named Dr. Richard Tubb, a retired brigadier general and former chief White House physician, to its board of directors.
Tubb was assigned to the White House Medical Unit for 14 years, and served in three presidential administrations from 1995-2009. As the longest-serving White House physician in U.S. history, Tubb was the personal doctor to President George W. Bush and to Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration.
He was also a brigadier general in the U.S. Air force, receiving his commission from the Air Force Academy in 1981. Tubb earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin.
Tubb has held leadership positions in all aspects of Air Force medicine with clinical, academic and operational medicine, garrisoned and deployed.
Now, he said he’s looking forward to working alongside experienced men and women of character.
“I want to leverage what the government group of LexisNexis Risk Solutions does best on behalf of the people who need it most — my patients, and those of every healer across the country, and those who also support them,” Tubb said. “Do well by doing good,”
LexisNexis Special Services CEO Haywood Talcove said Tubb’s experience will be invaluable to the company and its customers.
“Dick is a healthcare leader and he understands the data and analytics capabilities we have to help public health and healthcare agencies with identity management to provide a 360-degree view into patients, providers and hospitals, and to understand a patient’s social, environmental and economic situation, as well as protect patient safety,” Talcove said.
Including Tubb and Talcove, the LexisNexis Special Services board consists of nine members:
- Stacia Hylton, former deputy director for the U.S. Marshal Service
- Brian Stafford, a former director of the U.S. Secret Service
- Lee Rivas, CEO for the public sector and health care business units of LexisNexis Risk Solutions
- Alan Wade, president of Wade Associates and retired CIA chief information officer
- Howard Safir, former New York City police commissioner and associate director for operations for U.S. Marshals Service
