"Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell continued her management shake-up Wednesday by naming a former vice president at Wal-Mart as senior adviser.
The move to bring Leslie Dach to HHS reveals Burwell's interest in heading off problems during ObamaCare's second enrollment period, due to start in November.
The new HHS secretary also wants to add professionals with significant private sector experience to her inner circle.
"Leslie’s experience, which spans the business, government, and civil society sectors, will further enhance our ability to deliver impact for the American people," Burwell said in a statement.
"We want to not only retain, but also recruit, talented individuals to our mission of ensuring every American has access to the building blocks of a healthy, productive life."
Dach will focus on ObamaCare's second enrollment period as well as projects across the department, according to a press memo."
