Kyte will succeed founder and CEO Donald W. Kemper upon Kemper’s retirement. Kemper founded the Boise-headquartered nonprofit in 1975 and it has grown to become the world’s leading nonprofit provider of consumer health education and decision support.
Kyte will join Healthwise on June 1 and assume the CEO position on July 1 when Kemper retires. Existing Healthwise senior leadership will stay on board to maintain continuity and a strategic focus on its mission to help people make better health decisions.
In 2014, Healthwise merged with the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, now a division of Healthwise. The combined nonprofit has $39 million in annual revenues with 270 employees in Boise, Boston, and throughout the U.S.
Kyte served Healthwise as general counsel and other key roles from 1990 to 2009. He spent the last six years as president of the nonprofit Adventist Risk Management, a risk-management insurance broker and administrator. He was also president and CEO of GENCON Insurance Company, an affiliate of Adventist Risk Management. While with Adventist Risk Management, he led the organization to improved performance and reduced costs, while significantly increasing revenue growth.
