Former Novant Health Board of Trustees Chairman and State Senator Peter S. Brunstetter to lead legal team

Novant Health has hired Peter S. Brunstetter as the new executive vice president and chief legal counsel for the organization. Brunstetter has been an attorney for nearly 30 years and has served in the North Carolina State Senate since 2006. He replaces Larry McGee who recently retired from Novant Health.

“Pete comes to Novant Health at a time when the healthcare industry is facing unprecedented change and challenge,” said Carl S. Armato, president and CEO of Novant Health. “His knowledge of our organization and the regulatory environment will be a great asset to Novant Health.”

Since 2006, Brunstetter has served in the North Carolina State Senate representing District 31. He has resigned his position in the Senate effective December 15.

“Novant Health is committed to making healthcare remarkable and Pete will be a valuable member of our organization as we navigate the many challenges ahead,” said Armato.

Previously, Brunstetter served as a member of the Novant Health Board of Trustees including three years as chair. He was appointed as an initial board member with Novant Health when the organization formed in 1997 and continued to serve in a variety of capacities on the board for the next 10 years.

“Novant Health is committed to its communities and to its patients,” said Brunstetter. “I’m excited to re-join the organization at a time when it is accelerating its focus and commitment to making healthcare remarkable. With an eye on the future, Novant Health is one of the most innovative and exciting healthcare companies in the country ensuring at all times that the patient remains at the center of healthcare.”

Brunstetter received a bachelor of arts in political science from Tulane University and a juris doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law. He is a member of the North Carolina State Bar Association.

Brunstetter lives in Lewisville, N.C. with his wife, Jodie.
