Daniel Conrad

President and CEO

Combine active community member, wellness enthusiast and inspiring leader and you have Dan Conrad, president and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota and its parent organization, HealthyDakota Mutual Holdings, Inc. Dan had the unique challenge of stepping into that role in January 2020, just in time to lead the organization through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dan is not afraid of tackling challenges and inspires the BCBSND workforce to do the same. Together, they’re challenging the rising costs and growing complexities in health care.

He’s also passionate about elevating the role of well-being in the workplace. During his presidency, the organization has transformed its culture around a more holistic view of well-being. Their work has become a model that can be repeated throughout North Dakota.

After serving as a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice and as in-house counsel for two publicly traded companies, he started with BCBSND in 2013 as chief legal officer and executive vice president, providing expertise to execute key business strategies.

Over time, Dan’s organizational responsibilities grew and so did his love for North Dakota communities. He’s passionate about lifting others up and does so by serving on boards for Make-A-Wish North Dakota, the BCBSND Caring Foundation and is a member of the Valley Prosperity Partnership.

In 2022, Dan and his wife Rachel were thrilled and humbled to co-chair the United Way of Cass Clay annual campaign. They live in Fargo and have one grown daughter.
