2023 Power 50: 43. Roberta Wachtelhausen

Roberta Wachtelhausen

Roberta “Bert” Wachtelhausen is the president of WellSpark Health, a Farmington provider of corporate wellness programs that announced major expansion plans in 2021.

At the end of last year she added another title to her resume: interim president of Farmington health insurer ConnectiCare.

She took over the job following the departure of Karen Moran. 

WellSpark is a ConnectiCare affiliate. They are both owned by New York’s EmblemHealth.

The fact that ConnectiCare elevated Wachtelhausen to the top spot, even if it was on an interim basis, reflects her status within the company and industry. She was previously ConnectiCare’s chief sales marketing officer and has over three decades of senior leadership experience at national and regional health plans, including Cigna, Meritain and LifeCare. 

She also co-founded a health benefits startup, Averde Health. 

Her main focus in recent years has been trying to grow WellSpark’s share of the corporate wellness program market. 

WellSpark’s offerings — which focus on several areas, including health coaching and disease prevention, particularly related to chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension — have seen growing demand as employers put an emphasis on keeping their workers healthy.
