The board of directors of Connect for Health Colorado says a top aide is leaving the governor's office to lead Colorado's health insurance exchange.

In a statement Monday, the board said Kevin Patterson will resign as Gov. John Hickenlooper chief administrative officer to become interim chief executive officer of Colorado's Health Insurance Marketplace. Patterson succeeds Gary Drews, who also had been interim, since August. The board says it chose a second interim leader as it reviews the CEO search process with legislators.
