Name: Scott Leffler
Previous title: CFO and treasurer for sterilization and lab testing provider Sotera Health
New title: Chief financial officer, insurtech company Clover Health
In July, Nashville-based Clover disclosed that then-CFO Joe Wagner would be leaving the role that summer, after overseeing Clover's public debut via a merger with a special purpose acquisition company in early 2021.
Wagner elected to depart the role due to a family member's health challenges vying with the demands of being a public company CFO.
Mark Herbers of consulting firm AlixPartners has served as Clover's interim CFO since August 2021, following Wagner's departure.
Leffler will join Clover in August this year and will report to CEO Vivek Garipalli.
In a statement, Garipalli said he was impressed by Leffler's reputation as a finance leader in complex industries and his experience leading growth companies.
Leffler has served as Sotera's CFO since 2017. There, he oversaw the lab company's global finance, procurement and IT organizations, while helping Sotera scale to about $1 billion in revenue over his five year tenure. Leffler also led Sotera to an IPO in 2020.
Prior to joining Sotera, Leffler served as CFO and treasurer at packaging company Exal Corporation, now called Trivium Packaging. He also held various executive finance roles at manufacturing company PolyOne Corporation, now called Avient.
