Maestro Health Adds New Leadership to Drive Innovation in Health Plan Offerings
The company rounds out its leadership team with SVP of HR, Chief Development Officer and SVP of Sales and Marketing
Maestro Health, a tech-enabled third-party administrator (TPA) for employee health and benefits, officially announced the appointments of Kim Howe as Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Franck Brice as Chief Development Officer and Joe Meyer as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. With decades of experience in the healthcare and insurance industries, their combined leadership will help Maestro Health expand to new markets and accelerate growth within the health and benefits space.
Howe comes to Maestro Health with three decades of human resources and operations experience in the health and benefits space. As SVP of Human Resources, she has worked to enhance Maestro Health’s employee benefits offerings, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, performance management program and employee onboarding. Prior to Maestro Health, Howe served over 13 years at AXA Equitable. She started as the Director of HR Operations & Payroll and transitioned to a Senior Director role overseeing finance transformation and strategic initiatives, including Equitable’s eventual IPO.
“It’s been a busy year for the human resources team at Maestro Health,” Howe said. “We’ve listened to employees and provided them with the tools, processes and programs they need to be successful in their roles. More importantly, we’re prioritizing our employees’ overall wellbeing, including their physical, mental, financial and social health, just like the clients we serve.”
Brice joins Maestro Health from AXA where he led AXA Next’s U.S. Health program. In that role, he designed and deployed a global operating model, launched algorithm-based insurance products, created a global health and wellness platform and optimized fraud detection using artificial intelligence. At Maestro Health, Brice is responsible for furthering Maestro Health’s mission to lower costs and improve health outcomes for clients.

“I’ve always been passionate about helping organizations innovate through technology to solve business problems,” Brice said. “Joining forces with Maestro Health in a more direct role was a logical next step for both me and AXA. As Chief Development Officer, I can help draw stronger connections between Maestro Health and other AXA Next units, resulting in better outcomes for our clients.”
In Meyer’s role as SVP of Sales and Marketing, he is responsible for leading all sales and marketing functions and go-to-market strategies in support of Maestro Health’s new brand identity in the market. He’s spent 20 years in the health plan space, holding leadership roles at Cigna, MedCost, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina and Atrium Health. Throughout his career, Meyer has built a strong track record of revenue growth and market innovation with a keen focus on serving the needs of clients.
“Having worked on both the provider and payer side, I’ve witnessed firsthand how the U.S. healthcare system has failed to serve the needs of employers and the patients trying to utilize the system,” Meyer said. “It’s clear employers and their trusted advisors need more from their health plans, like innovative and transparent self-funded benefits solutions driven by strong cost and clinical care management programs. I look forward to using my industry expertise and strong relationships to drive revenue growth and extend Maestro Health’s reach across the market.”
