Minneapolis investor and Blue Cross board chairman Vance Opperman said the executive team under Guyette “is as strong as it’s ever been, certainly as energetic as it’s ever been.” But it’s too soon to tell if the quicker Blue Cross that Guyette described is succeeding in the marketplace.

The just-announced results for 2013 demonstrated stability, and Guyette said he was “pleasantly surprised” by growth in individual plans in January. In the acutely competitive group market in the Twin Cities there was “some slippage,” although he added that those purchase decisions were mostly made last year and he’s confident going into the next cycle.

“We should talk again in a year or two,” he said. “I’d love to know what you are hearing about us then.”
