WASHINGTON, Jul. 25, 2018  –  Strategy, enterprise design and technology service provider IdeaCrew today announced that Rob Shriver has joined the company as Vice President for Business Development. He will focus on business strategy and further expanding IdeaCrew’s growing presence in cloud-based benefits enrollment and health services for individuals and businesses.

Shriver comes to the position after four years as a top executive at the DC Health Benefit Exchange Authority. There, he directed all operations and technology for DC Health Link, the District’s on-line health insurance marketplace serving 100,000 customers. Rob led a turnaround effort that took DC Health Link to the top of the class among exchanges in the country, garnering multiple national awards for DC Health Link. Rob also conceived of, negotiated, and oversaw implementation of the first-in-the-nation partnership between DC Health Link and the Massachusetts Health Connector under which DC deployed and now operates Massachusetts’ small business health insurance exchange.

“Rob is an innovative leader with a uniquely well-rounded record of success,” said Dan Thomas, CEO of IdeaCrew. “His previous work as an exchange operations executive, CIO, policy-maker, and government lawyer means that he understands the full range of challenges that government and industry leaders face. We are excited to have Rob’s strategic leadership as we shape our cloud-based technical solutions to empower industry executives and government leaders to carry out their mission.”

“IdeaCrew’s customer-centric focus sets it apart from its competitors,” said Shriver. “States and businesses are recognizing that they need nimble solutions that empower them to deliver services rapidly and transparently, with the ability to scale up and down to meet demand. IdeaCrew has the commitment, experience and smarts to deliver what they need.”

Previously, Rob worked in President Obama’s Administration at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. At OPM, Rob stood up a new Affordable Care Act program that reached nearly 40 states covering half a million people at its apex. Rob also served as the agency’s deputy general counsel for policy. Before that, he was a lawyer for the National Treasury Employees Union.
