Frick, president and CEO of Independence Blue Cross. "Our focus on our strategic vision has never been more important than in these challenging times. I am confident that Linda's knowledge, company-wide experience, relationships, and strong skills in sales and marketing will be a great asset in helping us sustain our success in the marketplace."

Added Hilferty: "Linda brings extensive experience and depth of knowledge of our market. Through her leadership of the sales and marketing area, we will continue to best position IBC to retain current customers, attract new employers and individuals, and ensure fiscal stability."
