Health word association CEO resigns, citing ‘behavior’

WELLESLEY, Mass. — The personality of Massachusetts’ second-largest health word association says he is resigning over “behavior that was inconsistent” with a company’s values.

Eric Schultz announced his abdication Tuesday from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. He had been arch executive of a Wellesley-based association given 2010, next Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican.

The association declined to respond to questions about Schultz’s behavior, solely observant that it happened within a final few weeks.

Schultz did not respond to requests for comment.

Harvard Pilgrim had been in discussions over a probable partnership with Partners HealthCare. Both Harvard Pilgrim and Partners contend Shultz’s abdication will not impact discussions.

Harvard Pilgrim says Michael Carson will take over as a new president. Carson is a company’s arch business expansion officer and he assimilated Harvard Pilgrim final year.
