(PRESS RELEASE) TUCKER, GA — The National Association of Vision Care Plans (NAVCP) announced the ratified officers at the conclusion of the 2023 NAVCP Vision Care Retreat, held April 19-20 at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Arizona. Paul McLean, Senior Vice President, Benefit Services at Unum, assumed the NAVCP Chairman seat for a two-year term. Lori Archer, COO of UnitedHealthcare Vision assumed the Chair-Elect seat.

McLean is replacing Kate Renwick-Espinosa, President of VSP Vision Care who served as NAVCP Chairwoman from 2021-2023. “Paul brings a wealth of knowledge and industry expertise to the association and the managed vision care industry,” said Julian Roberts, executive director of NAVCP. “We are excited to see what the future brings as he leads us down the path of continued association growth and expansion.”

A dedicated member of NAVCP’s Board of Directors, McLean is enthusiastic to step into this new role. “I am honored to continue working with the NAVCP Board of Directors and our incredibly talented staff to help drive progress in our three focus areas of advocacy, simplicity and collaboration,” McLean said. “Managed vision care is a critical part of comprehensive health care, and increasing awareness about it means increasingly better experiences for members and providers alike.”

McLean joined Unum in September 2018 as chief operating officer for Starmount Life, a business Unum acquired in 2016. His team integrated dental and vision into Unum’s suite of workplace benefits. The company partnered with 178,000 companies and served 45 million people last year.

Having worked in all of Prudential’s US insurance and financial services businesses during a substantial portion of his career, McLean is known for building high performing and geographically diverse teams while successfully implementing business-driven technology. Whether it was leading rapid growth or winding down businesses, he led groups across finance, product development, operations, customer service, technology and through major company transformations.
