The White House plans to nominate Adam Boehler to be the CEO of the new U.S. Development Finance Corporation, a move that would put an entrepreneur and development outsider at the helm of the country’s new development finance agency.
Boehler, who is a relative unknown to the development community, has been serving as the director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation and is a senior adviser to the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. He is also reportedly close with White House adviser Jared Kushner, who was his roommate for a summer in college.
Boehler is the founder and former CEO of Landmark Health, an in-home medical care company, was an operating partner at Francisco Partners, a global investment firm, and also worked at a private equity firm and a venture capital firm in the past. He will now need to undergo a Senate confirmation process.
