President and CEO of Highmark Inc., Pennsylvania’s largest health insurer, was fired last week after he was charged with misdemeanor simple assault and misdemeanor criminal trespassing. Kenneth R. Melani, 58, had held the position of CEO and president of Highmark, Inc. since 2003.
According to police, Melani was involved in a fist fight with his mistress’ estranged husband and reportedly said he would have killed them both if the police were not there. Over the weekend, the company’s board of directors decided to terminate Melani due to his actions.
Highmark’s board chairman, J. Robert Baum, was the acting CEO while Melani was on unpaid leave following his arrest. Highmark has not announced who will take over as president and CEO.
