PORTLAND, Ore. – Cambia Health Solutions has announced the promotion of Rob Coppedge to President, Direct Health Solutions. For the past five years, Rob has led Cambia’s diversification and strategic investment efforts as Cambia Senior Vice President of Strategic Investment and Corporate Development. This promotion expands Rob’s responsibilities to include oversight of Cambia’s health solutions businesses, including the portfolio of wholly-owned companies and direct investments. In this role, Rob will accelerate Cambia’s work in investing in and building companies that benefit health care consumers nationwide.

Rob Coppedge joined Cambia in 2010 as the company began to invest in and build businesses in alignment with the company’s long-standing mission to transform health care.
