Horizon executives honored as diversity leaders

Two directors for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey have been recognized as DiversityMBA Magazine’s 2014 Top 100 Under 50 Diverse Executives & Emerging Leaders.

Maureen Martin, director of service operations, and Vincenza Cruz, director of talent acquisition, were honored at the Executive Leaders Conference and Awards Gala last week in Oak Brook, IL and will be featured in the 2014 fall issue of DiversityMBA Magazine.

“Horizon is proud that DiversityMBA Magazine has honored two of its talented directors, and congratulates Maureen and Vincenza for this well-deserved recognition,” said Alison Banks-Moore, chief diversity officer for Horizon.

Cruz, of Oakridge, leads Horizon’s overall recruiting efforts and works to maintain the company’s position as the employer of choice among top talent in the competitive health insurance industry.

She has collaborated with local and national military organizations to recruit, train and hire veterans of the armed forces.

As service operations director, Martin, of Westfield, is responsible for managing service delivery to more than 28,000 participating providers, 100 hospitals and other ancillary providers.

Under her leadership, Horizon has improved the quality, speed and cost efficiency of its service operations to better respond to customers’ needs.

Both executives are active members of Women’s LEAD, the company’s leadership affinity group, which fosters career development for female employees.

At the awards ceremony, Horizon was honored as one of the companies that demonstrates strong commitment to diversity and works to support external programs that enhance leadership.
