Gov. Jay Inslee this week announced the appointment of Ron Sims as board chair for the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, which runs the state’s online marketplace for health insurance, the Washington Healthplanfinder. His appointment runs from June 15, 2014, to Dec. 15, 2015.

Sims served for 12 years as King County Executive and served as deputy secretary at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from 2009 to 2011. He recently rejoined the board of directors of the Washington Health Alliance, an organization he helped found as the Puget Sound Health Alliance that brings together employers, physicians, hospitals, patients, health plan providers, and others to improve the quality of health care in Washington.
