Welcome Kathy and Kris!

Premier has recently welcomed two new smiling faces – Kathleen Almeter and Kristine McGuire. We are thrilled to share with you some of the things that they have brought to our Premier team.

Kathleen Almeter is our new Client Relations Manager and came to us from Paradigm Health Plans in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She has extensive experience working with self-funded health plans, as well as fully insured products. Kathy has melded perfectly into our team of experts – and her dedicated work ethic is already an asset to us. She has been eager to get out into the field and meet her new clients so that she is better able to understand their organizations’ needs and service them appropriately.

Kristine McGuire is our new Cost Management Coordinator and comes to us from Meritain Health after gaining 13 years of experience there. She has expertise in several areas, ranging from customer service, high-profile client relations, high-dollar claims, cost management and medical review. Kristine definitely won our hearts, or should I say stomachs, over when she brought in a homemade cheesecake to share with everyone. It was her first Friday here at Premier and she left a note in the kitchen stating “Desserts don’t have any calories on Fridays!”

We’re confident in the addition of these two new members to the team. They have brought years of varied experience to Premier and will continue to grow from their new encounters here. Surely, they will help contribute to the continued success here at Premier.
