John Moore has been a long-time success story in the health care investment business. He founded the Marwood Group with Edward Kennedy, Jr. in January of this year, and is serving as the company’s chairman and CEO.
Before starting the Marwood Group, Moore was the vice chairman of the board of managers and a cofounder of CarePlus Health Plan, an HMO based in New York City. After nine years, the company was sold to Amerigroup in January of 2005.
Moore is very active in the New York City civic arena. He chooses not to focus on one particular area, but rather sits on the board of the Metropolitan Foundation, a not-for-profit organization which raises money for need-based charities throughout the NY area.
Moore also is on the alumni advisory board to the Communications Department at his alma mater, University of North Carolina — Chapel Hill. There he received his B.A. in Communication Studies. He has fourth-generation Irish roots in counties Meath and Monaghan. Moore is married to wife Tanya, and they have two children, Alexandra and John IV, in New York.
