Our Leadership

Over one third of our senior leadership team are Veterans, giving us an important perspective on our VA customer and the Veterans we serve. Our management team includes physician leaders, nurse executives, and seasoned business professionals, all with CBOC experience in managing every aspect and challenge of the CBOC business. The benefit is a VA-contractor partnership that delivers exceptional healthcare and customer service to Veterans and brings innovative problem solving and thought leaders to our VA customer.

With a leadership team composed of Veterans, clinicians, and business leaders, Valor distinguishes itself from competitors in shaping the Veteran experience.

Valor’s collective leadership team has well over a century of hands-on CBOC experience. CBOCs are generally required to be non-branded with the contractor invisible to the Veteran. Valor’s leadership team works to function as an extension of the VAMC’s clinical, operational, and contract management teams. We put the needs of the Veterans and our VA partners at the center of our clinical and business focus.
