Anna Sever, most recently senior vice president of strategy and growth at Magellan Federal, has been appointed interim CEO of the Arlington, Virginia-based company.
She will replace Oscar Montes, formerly CEO of Magellan Federal, and bring to the role her knowledge in strategy development, business growth and commitment to team excellence, the company said in a LinkedIn post.
Sever, who joined Magellan Federal in 2021, will lead efforts to expand the company’s impact and presence in the field of federal behavioral health.
She is a military spouse with over two decades of leadership experience as a health care and social services veteran.
She has been responsible for program and business development and capture management in the Medicaid and Medicare, child welfare, behavioral health, developmental disabilities areas at federal, state and county governments.
Sever previously served as VP of health strategy and business development and VP of federal services at Maximus (NYSE: MMS), where she worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs on key initiatives.
Magellan Federal became a wholly owned subsidiary of Centene (NYSE: CNC) after the latter acquired Magellan Health in early 2022.
