Mazel tov, Tevi!

Washington, DC—HR Policy Association, representing the chief human resource officers of more than 350 of the largest private sector employers in the United States, announces the selection of Tevi Troy, former Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to lead the development of a health care initiative of the HR Policy Foundation.

 HR Policy Association member companies, all of whom are large employers, collectively spend more than $75 billion annually on health care in the U.S. and are in the process of assessing their company's current and future health care strategies in light of the growing instability of the American health care system.  They are seeking to establish a leadership organization dedicated to developing a more sustainable health care delivery system for the employees, dependents and retirees of large employers.

Dr. Troy is currently a Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute, where he will remain an Adjunct Fellow, and a writer and consultant on health care and domestic policy.  In 2007, he was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  He was the chief operating officer of the largest civilian department in the federal government, with a budget of $716 billion and over 67,000 employees.  In that position, he oversaw all operations, including Medicare.

HR Policy Association CEO Jeffrey C. McGuiness said, “We are delighted to announce that Dr. Troy will be leading this critically important initiative.  He brings not only a wealth of understanding and expertise about health care, policy and the government, but a strong managerial and operations background.  Having successfully run the largest department in the government in terms of employees and budget, focused on all aspects of health care, Dr. Troy is uniquely qualified to help guide and lead this new organization.”

Dr. Troy has extensive White House and Capitol Hill experience.  During the George W. Bush Administration, he served as Deputy Assistant and then Acting Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy and was the White House’s lead adviser on health care, labor, education, transportation, immigration, crime, veterans and welfare.  Dr. Troy also served as the Policy Director for U.S. Senator John Ashcroft and as Senior Domestic Policy Adviser and Domestic Policy Director for the U.S. House Policy Committee.

In addition to his senior level government work and health care expertise, Dr. Troy is also an author and presidential historian.  He is a frequent television and radio analyst, and has appeared on CNN, CNBC, FOX News, FOX Business, and The Jim Lehrer Show, among other outlets.  He is currently on tour for his latest book, What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in the White House and is the author of Intellectuals and the American Presidency: Philosophers, Jesters, or Technicians? (Lanham: Rowman & Littlefield, 2002).  He has written over 100 articles, for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes, The New Republic, Commentary, Reason, Investor’s Business Daily, National Review, Washingtonian, The Weekly Standard, and other publications.  Dr. Troy has a B.S. in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University and an M.A and Ph.D. in American Civilization from the University of Texas at Austin.
