COVENTRY – Preventure, a corporate wellness program provider, introduced its new CEO on Tuesday.

The company’s founder and CEO David Pickering stepped aside to serve as chairman. Mark Correia, who served as chief operating officer for the past 10 years, will be the new CEO.

Preventure also announced that it has promoted its vice president of operations, Kathy O’Neel-Webster, to fill Correia’s shoes as chief operating officer. Laura Walmsley, vice president of new business development, will be chief business development officer.

“Helping to build Preventure into one of the global leaders in corporate wellness programs has only been surpassed by seeing my good friend and business partner, Mark, take over as CEO and Kathy and Laura become executives with the company. It’s one thing to start a company, but when you can see your colleagues rise up to take charge, it provides an even greater reward and appreciation,” said Pickering in a news release.

Correia’s previous experience includes a 20-year career with Healthtrax International Inc., a news release said.
