Biography

Jim Arriola is president and CEO of Sekure Healthcare, a health care service company primarily focused on providing affordable health care to California's uninsured workforce. As cofounder of the company, Arriola established the business plan, helped attract capital investment and solidified key strategic relationships on both sides of the border. Sekure Healthcare offers employer-sponsored health benefit plans throughout California as well as plans that extend access to more than 140 cities in Mexico. Arriola has more than 20 years of management and business experience. He led development and operations of pioneering healthcare insurance products aimed at Latino and Mexican immigrant consumers, including Blue Shield of California's program to offer the first California-based, cross-border HMO plan.

He is registered with California Department of Insurance and is a certified provider of continuing education classes that teach insurance agents about the health care needs of Latino and cross-border workers.

Mr. Arriola also has two post-graduate degrees: a master's degree in human resources management from Chapman University and an M.B.A. from National University.
