— The Allen Institute appointed Chris Beaudoin as its new chief operations officer. Beaudoin was previously chief operating officer at Swedish, a Seattle-area healthcare system affiliated with Providence.
Prior to joining Swedish, Beaudoin spent a decade at Renton-based Providence, working in pharmacy services and operations before becoming part of the corporate business team tasked with partner integration. He served as the chief transition officer at Providence for its $20 billion merger with St. Joseph Health in 2017.
Beaudoin also worked six years at GlaxoSmithKline as an executive sales rep. He will start the new job in mid-November. The Allen Institute, a Seattle-based nonprofit research institution founded by the late Paul Allen, appointed a new CEO and president, Rui Costa, last December.
