AmeriHealth New Jersey names Ryan Petrizzi vice president of sales

Cranbury, NJ, August 28, 2017 — AmeriHealth New Jersey today announced that Ryan Petrizzi has been named vice president of sales. In his new role, Petrizzi will oversee new business and retention for AmeriHealth New Jersey’s entire sales organization across all market segments including individual, small and large business, public sector and self-funded. In addition he is responsible for sales strategy, product development, and customer experience for all market segments. Petrizzi assumes his new role on September 1, 2017.

Petrizzi has been with AmeriHealth New Jersey for more than a decade, most recently as vice president of consumer markets and product development. In that role, he drove end-to-end oversight and accountability of the company’s consumer markets, membership growth and retention. In addition, Ryan oversaw product development, product implementation, sales support and AmeriHealth New Jersey’s healthcare reform strategy.

Prior to that Petrizzi held several sales roles within the company as director of sales operations and small markets, where he oversaw AmeriHealth New Jersey’s product management and sales operations teams as well as small group and individual market sales segments throughout the state, and as director of sales for Northern New Jersey for all market segments. He has also held various sales-related roles with Aetna US Healthcare throughout New Jersey and Delaware where he was repeatedly recognized as one of the top sales people nationwide.
