Juan Lopera, vice president of Business Diversity for Tufts Health Plan, has been appointed to serve on Governor Charlie Baker’s Latino Advisory Commission. The new commission, established by executive order on July 10, will focus on addressing the concerns of the Massachusetts Latino community and promoting economic prosperity and well-being, the company announced.

“The members of our Latino Advisory Commission each bring a depth of experience and diversity to the table, and I look forward to their recommendations,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Our administration is committed to creating opportunities all our citizens in every corner of the Commonwealth to drive economic growth and success, and I’m confident this commission will add meaningful value to our goal to make Massachusetts the best place to live, work and raise a family.”

Members of the commission include gubernatorial appointees with varying expertise in business, community outreach, media, law, health care, education and represent a group diverse in gender, race, industry, region, age and education. The Commission will review and assess the priorities of the Latino community on a statewide basis and make recommendations to the Governor and Lt. Governor by identifying up to three priority areas to be addressed by the Commission over the course of the next two years.

“Juan has led our diversity and inclusion efforts to the next level,” said Tom Croswell, Tufts Health Plan president and CEO. “He will be a great asset to the commission, bringing his passion and understanding of the issues.”

At Tufts Health Plan, Lopera is responsible for enterprise-wide efforts to identify and implement strategies to grow Tufts Health Plan’s presence in diverse communities comprising members, providers, brokers, employers, employees and vendors. He serves on the board of directors for The Dimock Center and on the corporate advisory board for the Association of Latino Professionals for America.

“I am humbled by this honor from Governor Baker,” said Lopera. “As a member of this important commission I look forward to bringing my health care expertise as well as my personal experience as an immigrant who has faced many of the challenges that our Latino community faces.”
