Ana English, Independent Director  English is a senior executive and board advisor with over 25 years of experience leading organizations and driving cultural and strategic change. She’s recognized for her ability to lead, devise and implement the strategic vision, organizational culture, strengthen productivity, and drive goals and objectives. She is currently the President and CEO for the Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC), a non-profit organization. Prior to CIVHC, she was Senior Executive of a for-profit subsidiary of the American Medical Association (AMA). Prior to the AMA, she held Chief Executive positions with The Assist Group and Electronic Network Systems as well as Senior Vice President positions with divisions of UnitedHealthcare and Foundation Health Systems. English is very familiar with Olympic-style shooting having grown up as a competitive rifle athlete.  She started competing with the Erie County Conservation League (ECCL) Junior Team in Sandusky, Ohio.  She then competed for Eastern Kentucky University and was a four-time All-American. Her brother and sister also competed in the sport with her sister, Kim, competing for West Virginia University, earning All-America honors as well and earning U.S. Development Team status.  Ana’s daughter, Amber, is a current National Team member in shotgun (skeet) and was previously an athlete representative on the BOD. Her husband, Mike, passed away suddenly in 2016 while diving in the Cayman Islands. He was a 10-year member of the U.S. Shooting National Team from 1978 to 1988, winning five national championships in running target and a world title in 1981.
