The board of directors of New Directions Behavioral Health has named Lee Tuveson as the next president and chief executive officer. His selection followed a national search. Tuveson succeeds Dr. John Quick, who has served as CEO and president since the behavioral health care company was founded in 1995.
Tuveson has been New Directions' chief financial and administrative officer since 2014. In that role, he has been instrumental to New Directions' growth and success in a number of key areas: infrastructure, operations, finance, project management, data analytics, and claims system management, among others.
Before coming to New Directions, Tuveson worked at McDonnell Douglas for seven years, and at Magellan Health Services for 18, most recently as vice president of finance and contracts. In addition to his in-depth understanding of the managed health care industry and his business acumen, he shares New Directions' company values and clinical philosophy. Tuveson is a solid and compassionate leader who knows how to manage costs while putting members first.
