Berkshire Hathaway, Amazon and JPMorgan Are Close to Hiring a CEO for Their Healthcare Venture

The joint healthcare venture formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan in January will soon announce new CEO to lead the company, Warren Buffett revealed at his company’s annual meeting Saturday.

“We’re making a lot of progress, and I think we’ll probably have a CEO within a couple of months,” Buffett said at the Berkshire Hathaway meeting in Omaha.

The legendary investor, nicknamed the “Oracle of Omaha,” did not specify who was in the running for the top position. But candidates under consideration reportedly include Todd Park, the federal government’s former chief technology officer; Andy Slavitt, the former acting administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and former Aetna executive Gary Loveman, according to CNBC.

While few details of the healthcare venture have been released so far, Buffett also clarified the nature of Berkshire’s partnership with Amazon (AMZN, +1.13%) and JPMorgan (JPM, +1.19%).
