It also makes it possible for me to continue to do what I love – mentoring physicians and providing clinical guidance, speaking at industry conferences, taking care of injured workers and working with employers on their occupational health needs.
"I intend to remain fully engaged while entrusting Bill to lead our talented team as we pursue our immediate and long-term business objectives. We will continue to strive to keep people healthy and maintain their connection with work, because we know that work matters and health counts."
As CFO, Nixon has been instrumental in significantly expanding WorkCare's footprint by investing in information technology, creating scalable delivery models and entering into strategic partnerships that add value for customers.
"I am very excited to be named President and CEO," Nixon said. "WorkCare has positively impacted the occupational health service delivery landscape thanks to the insight and creative thinking of our founder, Dr. Greaney. The team we've assembled, through a planned and deliberate transition, will build on that foundation and help shape the future of a healthy and vibrant workforce."
Among leadership changes announced today, Nixon has named Chief Innovation Officer Maria Henderson to the dual role of Chief Operating Officer and CIO responsible for oversight of WorkCare's service lines, analytics and human resources.
Henderson, who joined the company in March, is a widely respected thought leader with national expertise in employee health management.

She also established and led a consulting practice serving large employers and suppliers across the country for over eight years.
