Privia Health Announces Leadership Succession
Current President and COO Parth Mehrotra Named CEO;
Shawn Morris to Retire and Remain on Board of Directors

ARLINGTON, VA – April 12, 2023 – Privia Health (Nasdaq: PRVA), a technology-driven, national physician enablement company, today announced that Parth Mehrotra, currently the Company’s President and Chief Operating Officer, has been named Chief Executive Officer, effective July 1, 2023. Mehrotra is succeeding current CEO, Shawn Morris, who is retiring and will remain on the Company’s Board of Directors.
Under Morris’ leadership since early 2018, Privia Health progressed from a private, regional organization into a publicly-traded company with national reach. During that time, the Company entered eight new states, completed a successful IPO in April 2021, and increased its implemented provider partners by more than 125% to over 3,600.
“I am extremely proud of what Privia Health has achieved during my five years as CEO. I have been privileged to lead an outstanding executive team and over 900 mission-driven Privians across the U.S., whose dedication to improving population health, reducing healthcare costs, enhancing patients’ experience, and improving the personal wellbeing of health care providers has made Privia Health a leader in healthcare,” Shawn Morris said. “I’ve worked closely with our Board of Directors to build and implement a succession plan for a seamless transition. Parth has operated as my partner to drive Privia’s success, and his demonstrated leadership capabilities, deep healthcare experience and superb execution of our long-term growth strategy position him perfectly to succeed me as CEO to drive the next phase of Privia’s growth and expansion.”
Mr. Mehrotra has served as President and COO of Privia Health since 2018 and as COO of Brighton Health Group, the preceding parent company of Privia Health, from 2016 to 2018.
“I want to thank Shawn for all he has done for Privia Health and the entire provider and payer industry,” Mehrotra added. “I have been deeply involved with growth-oriented healthcare businesses, and it has been an absolute pleasure to partner with Shawn to drive Privia’s growth strategy. I am honored to succeed him, and I look forward to continuing to actively engage with Shawn as he continues to serve as a Board member.
“I am excited to lead Privia Health during this time of profound industry change and unprecedented opportunity for physician enablement,” Mehrotra continued. “We will remain focused on building one of the largest primary-care centric delivery networks in the nation, and continuing to work with our employees to serve our physician, health system and payer partners with the highest level of service expertise and collaboration in the industry today.”
Commenting on the planned succession and Mehrotra’s appointment, David King, Chairman of the Privia Health Board of Directors, said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Shawn for his significant contributions to the Company over the past five years. Our Board has been engaged in a rigorous

succession planning process in order to ensure a successful leadership transition, and we unanimously agreed that Parth is the best person to lead our Company in its next phase of growth.
“Parth has proven himself to be a highly-respected leader at Privia Health over the past seven years. With a growing national presence and strong reputation as a leader in physician enablement, the Company is well positioned for future growth and long-term profitability. The Board looks forward to continuing to work with Parth and the entire leadership team as they work to build on Privia’s market momentum, strive to achieve its mission, and create value for all of our stakeholders,” King concluded.
Separately, Privia Health reiterated its full-year 2023 guidance, in which all operating and non-GAAP financial metric guidance initially provided on February 28, 2023 remain unchanged.
