Insurance Industry Insider Turned Reformer

Insurance Industry Insider Turned Reformer

  Speaking in Maine offers a talk by Wendell Potter. He was a health insurance industry insider for 20 years before leaving his post to advocate for health care reform.

Wendell Potter has served since May 2009 as the Center for Media and Democracy's Senior Fellow on Health Care. After a 20-year career as a corporate public relations executive, last year he left his job as head of communications for one of the nation's largest health insurers to try his hand at helping socially responsible organizations -- including those advocating for meaningful health care reform -- achieve their goals.
