Robert J. Greczyn Jr. continues to beef up his resume in retirement.
The former CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina will join the board of Raleigh-based LipoScience. The company is developing blood tests that use nuclear magnetic resonance technology. Its main product is a test to check bad cholesterol levels.
"LipoScience is leading the way in innovative new approaches for the management of cardiovascular disease," Greczyn said in a prepared statement.
LipoScience, led by CEO Richard O. Brajer, is a private company that doesn't disclose much information about its business, including how many employees it has or any financial results.
LipoScience had retained executive search firm Caldwell Partners to help recruit new board members.
The company also named Woodrow Myers Jr. to its board. Myers is former chief medical officer at WellPoint, another Blue Cross health plan.
Greczyn, who retired from Blue Cross more than a year ago, is also on the board of Raleigh-based TrustAtlantic Bank, and is a visiting professor of health policy and management at UNC-Chapel Hill's Gillings School of Global Public Health. He's also opening a Mellow Mushroom pizza restaurant in Cary with his son Will Greczyn.
