Prior to MCG joining Hearst Corporation, Mr. Shreve had been with Milliman for 25 years. During this time he started or led ten different consulting and product practices, served on its Board, and led its Product Subcommittee.” (MCG, 2014)

Jon fosters a close relationship with his Provider clients by hiring and nurturing a field that has deep knowledge and experience with medical practice, mostly Bachelor’s degree holding ex-nurses.
