Anna Sever has been tapped as president of Magellan Federal and will lead the company to bolster operational controls and redesign processes, structure and technology to better target larger federal opportunities.
“Anna’s substantial expertise will help expand our reach and impact in the federal behavioral health business,” said Magellan Health CEO Derrick Duke. “Anna has set a clear strategy to target new markets for growth and expansion for Magellan Federal in the years to come, and I’m excited to see the new ways she will lead.”
Sever joined Magellan in 2021 and previously served as the senior vice president of the strategy and growth division of Magellan Federal.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve as the leader of Magellan Federal and manage the team of over 2,500 dedicated individuals offering complex wellness services to our nation’s fighting forces, federal civilian employees, and their families,” Sever said.
“I look forward to the work we will accomplish while focusing on our goal to empower government personnel, military service members, and civilians to live a healthier, more productive life,” she said.
Before Magellan, Sever led Maximus’ health business development division. She was instrumental in Maximus’ work with key Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Department of Veterans Affairs programs.
Sever also served as a gubernatorial appointee in an Umbrella Health and Welfare agency, where she was responsible for the operations of the Department of Health and Welfare.
