Little Rock healthcare nonprofit AFMC’s Board of Directors has selected John Selig to assume the role of the company’s next CEO, following a nationwide search. Selig will assume the role effective Sept. 1, following the announcement of current CEO Ray Hanley‘s retirement. Hanley has led the healthcare nonprofit for over a decade.
AFMC is a private, nonprofit organization focused on improving health and health care through private and public partnerships.
“It is my pleasure to entrust the success of the future to someone such as John,” said Hanley in an official statement. “I’ve known John professionally for many years. His leadership, expertise and vision align with AFMC’s future growth and diversification plans. The Board made an excellent hire.”
Selig, a De Queen native, most recently served as vice president of Public Sector Growth for Optum, a health services innovation company. Prior to joining Optum, he served as director of the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) for ten years.
“I am honored to be the Board’s choice as AFMC’s newest CEO,” said Selig. “AFMC has strong leadership, and I am delighted to be entrusted with the future of the company.”
This announcement comes as AFMC is celebrating its 50th year. Selig and his wife Jeannie live in Benton. They have three children and are avid cyclists and travelers.
