Health Alliance Plan (HAP), a nonprofit health plan based in Detroit, has added Joni M. T. Davis and Meerah Rajavel to its board of directors.

“We’re thrilled that these new additions to our board and its committees bring expertise that will support and enhance our efforts as we continue to look for innovative ways to serve HAP members,” says Michael Genord, president and CEO of HAP.

Davis, a second-generation owner-operator of four McDonald’s restaurants in the metro Detroit area is a general counsel and managing partner of Jamjomar Inc., the managing company for 30 McDonald’s locations in southeast Michigan and Louisiana.

Her extensive legal experience includes serving as senior attorney and diversity director at Detroit law firm Miller, Canfield, Paddock, and Stone. She holds a law degree from Emory University School of Law and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan.  She is licensed to practice law in Michigan and California.

Rajavel, chief information officer of Palo Alto Networks, is responsible for the organization’s global information technology functions. She brings significant experience to HAP from her understanding of the IT challenges faced by industries and organizations, having also served as CIO at Citrix and in leadership roles at McAfee, Forcepoint, Cisco, and Infosys.

She holds a master’s degree in business administration from the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, Calif., and a bachelor’s degree in computer science and engineering from the Thiagarajar College of Engineering at Anna University in Chennai, India.

“HAP is committed to providing an exceptional customer experience,” says Genord. “This includes enhancing our digital delivery capabilities as well as addressing the critical issues of health inequities, social disparities and rising health care costs, which disproportionately impact certain populations.”
