Maria Ghazal
President & CEO at Healthcare Leadership Council


Maria Ghazal serves as President and CEO of the Healthcare Leadership Council, the leading healthcare industry association representing all segments of American healthcare. Ms. Ghazal previously was Senior Vice President and Counsel for Business Roundtable (BRT), an association representing the CEOs of America’s top companies. Throughout her nearly two decades with BRT, Ms. Ghazal played a leadership role in the public policy work of the organization, including health policy, serving as the primary advocate for America’s leading corporations during the debate over the Affordable Care Act. She also directed membership outreach, recruitment, and retention, and oversaw policy development and advocacy for the Business Roundtable Corporate Governance Committee. This led to the Roundtable’s groundbreaking work on a new “Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation” which sparked a worldwide dialogue on the role of corporations in society.
