Theresa Holder Joins America's Warrior Partnership Board of Directors

-- America's Warrior Partnership announces the appointment of Theresa Holder to its board of directors --

Theresa Holder is vice president, veterans and military health BD at Optum, an information and technology-enabled health services company. She brings more than 20 years of experience in the information technology (IT) industry to America’s Warrior Partnership. With a focus on innovation and building customer relationships on the local and federal levels, Holder has directed teams of account managers responsible for administering $4 billion in business pursuits.

“Ensuring health systems are benefiting veterans has been a focus throughout my career,” said Holder. “Collaboration between service providers is essential to improving the reach and quality of health services available to veterans, and America’s Warrior Partnership has been a national leader in using the latest technology to facilitate collaboration between communities and national groups. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to contribute to that mission.”

Holder is an active member of several nonprofit associations that are focused on veteran health, including Paralyzed Veterans of America, VetSports, Final Salute and Wounded Warrior Project. Prior to her current position at Optum, she served as vice president of business development at Leidos in the organization’s veterans health department.

“Theresa’s passion when it comes to technology and veteran services is a perfect fit for our team,” said Jim Lorraine, president and CEO of America’s Warrior Partnership. “She has a passion for giving back to our nation’s veterans and has nearly dedicated her entire career to serving them. We’re happy to have her on board.”

America’s Warrior Partnership’s Community Integration model is active in nine communities across the country and has served more than 38,000 veterans in three years. This model empowers communities through training, mentorship and structure to conduct proactive outreach to veterans by connecting existing resources and providing tools to create stronger collaboration among existing veteran service providers, bridging gaps in service wherever they may exist. The result is a more coordinated approach that holistically serves each veteran’s individual needs, ensuring no one slips through the cracks or does not receive essential support services.
