UnitedHealth Group Inc. has hired Patricia Lewis as its new chief human resources officer. She’ll serve in the office of the chief executive, the company said in an email. She’s replacing D. Ellen Wilson, who is retiring.
Previously, Lewis served in the same role at Lockheed Martin Corp. She’s also worked in human resources for IBM and DuPont.
At Lockheed Martin, Lewis had success starting a number of talent initiatives, including the STEM Scholarship Program and the Program Management Talent Initiative, with the goal of increasing the presence of traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM.
Lewis was recently featured in Politco’s “Women Rule” newsletter under the heading “Wisdom of the Week.” Her wisdom read, in part, “Bold leaders consistently demonstrate courage. Being courageous means taking risks even if you are faced with an uncertain outcome.”
UnitedHealth is Minnesota’s largest public company. In 2018, it had an income of $11.99 billion on $229.48 billion in sales. It employs 18,500 people in Minnesota alone, according to Business Journal research.
