Sweda is a highly respected leader with more than 30 years at the Careington companies, including more than two decades as a C-suite executive.

As an integral and influential leader across the Careington companies, Sweda was instrumental in growing Careington's coveted PPO and discount dental networks, and his leadership directly contributed to the exponential growth and development of all Careington companies and brands with a focus on helping to shape their niche space in today's evolving benefits market.

"I am honored to lead the Careington family of companies as CEO," said Sweda. "I've worked with Barbara my entire career, during which time she has been a tremendous leader that has helped forge an amazing path for our companies and brands. Working closely together, our collaborative leadership and shared innovative vision have significantly contributed to helping Careington become a reputable leader in the health and wellness benefits space. I look forward to serving as CEO and working alongside our many talented teams to pave the way for continued growth and success for our many companies and brands, ensuring we continually support our valued clients, partners, providers and members with the same standard of service excellence Careington is known for."
With Fasola and Sweda serving together at the helm of the company in their respective C-suite positions, the Careington companies achieved many milestones, including contributing to the passage of groundbreaking legislation for the industry; propelling non-insured products to become some of the fastest growing health care benefits in the market today; and evolving the Careington company client base to include carriers, TPAs, employers of all sizes, associations, unions, school systems and more. They have also been instrumental in expanding our industry-best product portfolio to include more than 150 high-value and in-demand products and services; establishing the Careington companies as a go-to niche, single-source product and service solution; and helping to launch a virtual healthcare affiliate company that continues to experience significant growth across the innovative virtual care solutions it offers.
