Banner|Aetna Names Jon Dingledine as New Market Head of Sales

PHOENIX – Banner|Aetna, the Arizona health care company owned by Banner Health and Aetna, announced that Jon Dingledine has joined the team as the new market head of sales.

“We’re eager to bring on Jon’s passion and strong leadership skills to further escalate the growth trajectory of Banner|Aetna in the Arizona market,” said Tom Grote, CEO of Banner|Aetna. “Not only has he spearheaded success for Aetna’s Colorado market, but he also has experience on the consulting side, giving him a unique perspective on how to best align with our broker and consultant community.”

As market head of sales, Dingledine will lead sales and service operations for both commercial and public & labor markets. Prior to joining the Banner|Aetna team, Dingledine served as market head of sales at Aetna in Colorado.

“Jon has moved the needle for Aetna as market head of sales since 2016,” said Grote. “He really understands what our clients are looking for when it comes to health care and we’re excited to welcome him to the Banner|Aetna team.”

Before his role at Aetna, Dingledine served as vice president of Hill, Chesson & Woody, a large employee benefits consulting firm, where he led the consulting team responsible for client retention and implemented strategy for clients across products and funding.

Dingledine also delivered measurable results through a series of sales, account management and leadership roles in the health care and insurance sector for more than 20 years at various companies including UnitedHealth Group, Prudential Healthcare and Healthsource North Carolina.

Dingledine obtained his Bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Tennessee, and will be relocating to the Phoenix area from Colorado.

Frank Benedetto, who previously held the role of market head of sales, is taking on the role of business development director for Banner|Aetna. Benedetto will be responsible for driving membership growth for national accounts and large middle market accounts.
