One Vision. One Promise

Leadership.

agilon health was built on a simple promise. The promise to change the way healthcare is delivered for senior populations. To do that, we’ve assembled a team of like-minded industry executives who share that same vision and clarity of purpose.

Expertise with a Purpose


Our founders had a vision and a deep understanding of what was needed to reimagine the health care delivery system.  They understood that the fabric of our organization had to be developed by leaders who not only excelled in their own areas but who appreciated the interdependencies with other critical aspects of our Platform. They worked diligently to recruit a leadership team that reflected their vision.

Fueled by their passion and an unwillingness to compromise, they built a leadership team that is recognized as one of the best in the industry. A team that is passionate about transforming the delivery system by enabling physicians to achieve new standards of quality, efficiency, and patient experience.

Our executive team is organized around the core tenets that we believe drive better outcomes: deep partner integration through local market leadership, quality, and efficiency improved care through data analytics and insights, organic growth and engagement, addressing gaps in care, and technology that allows transformation.

At the helm of that management team is Steve Sell, a seasoned executive who spent over twenty years defining organizational culture, partnership strategies, operational processes, and investments for a pioneering health plan. Drawing from the management models he implemented at Health Net, Steve brings a deep commitment to physician partnership and the expertise to rapidly expand agilon health partnerships across the country.

Leadership Team


Like our partnership model, the way our executive leadership team works is unique. Each member of the team has expertise in their own area of the company, but they also have first-hand knowledge of the other areas of the platform that rely on them. As a result, the team is acutely dedicated to operational excellence, collaboration, and innovation — all of which drive care transformation forward.
