Paul Posey Jr. (’89, MBA ’08)
Paul J. Posey Jr. recently took a new position as Chief Business Officer at Robin Healthcare in Memphis, returning to his hometown in the midst of a pandemic on a mission to change the future of healthcare by reducing administrative burdens for doctors, allowing them to focus on caring for patients, growing their practice, and balancing life with work.
Paul graduated from CBU with a BA in History and Political Science in 1989 and went on to earn a law degree from the University of Memphis. As a lawyer and legal counsel for Sedgwick Claims Management Services, he returned to CBU and graduated with an MBA in 2008 — and then took his business acumen back to Sedgwick as COO and was a key leader supporting the growth of Sedgwick from a $100 million revenue company to the industry’s largest claims and productivity management company, with revenues in excess of $1 billion and more than 10,000 employees.
Paul then spent almost eight years in St. Louis as CEO of Ascension Care Management and President of Ascension Risk Services, which are subsidiaries of Ascension Health Alliance, the largest not-for-profit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system. Paul was responsible for a variety of litigation, claims, risk, and insurance programs for Ascension, including the development of commercial risk products in professional liability and population health management.
Paul has served on numerous community, industry, and religious boards in order to use his knowledge and skills for the benefit of the community. He is a member of the Memphis and Tennessee Bar Associations, the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management, and has served on the CBU Board of Trustees since 2015. He has previously served on the board of Leadership Memphis and was actively engaged in their mission of “building a better community by building better leaders” through hands-on participation in both leadership programming and mentoring high school students in the city’s underserved communities. He has also served on the board of the Workers Compensation Research Institute and on the Bishop’s Advisory Council of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis. He was President of CBU’s Alumni Board in 1999.
