Dr. Jason Altmire
President and CEO
Dr. Jason Altmire is the President and Chief Executive Officer of CECU. He has been a senior executive for large companies in both the hospital and health insurance industries, and from 2007 to 2013, he served three terms in the United States House of Representatives. He authored the critically acclaimed book, “Dead Center: How Political Polarization Divided America and What We Can Do About It,” and he has been a frequent guest on national television news programs and an opinion contributor to a number of national print media outlets.
In Congress, he was a bipartisan centrist known for working with both sides of the aisle, which led to an extraordinary record of legislative success. He served as a subcommittee chairman, had 29 of his legislative initiatives signed into law, and introduced a bipartisan bill that gained the most cosponsors of any congressional bill in American history. During his time in office, the nonpartisan National Journal calculated Altmire's voting record to be at the exact midpoint of the House, giving him the most centrist voting record in Congress.
Dr. Altmire is an adjunct professor of healthcare management at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. He co-chairs the advisory board of the Center for Effective Lawmaking at the University of Virginia, and serves on advisory boards for the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, Unite America, and the Washington Political Film Foundation.
He earned his Doctorate in Business Administration from the University of Florida, a Master's degree in Health Administration from George Washington University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Florida State University.
