SVP Fierle out at HealthNow

HealthNow New York’s senior vice president of marketing and communications, Gretchen Fierle, has left the company.

Fierle, the health insurer’s highest-ranking woman executive since 2013, earlier served as vice president and chief communications officer at HealthNow, which operates locally as BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York. She joined the company five years ago and earned $313,042 in 2014, according to a HealthNow’s financial statement filed with state regulators. She previously worked as vice president of communication and community relations at Independent Health and is a graduate of Bard College.

HealthNow issued a statement Wednesday confirming Fierle is no longer with the company but declined further comment.
