Aubrey Davis is the embodiment of leadership, foresight and cooperative spirit. For 40 years he served Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound, the nation's largest cooperative health maintenance organization. He held every elected position, including seven terms as chair of the cooperative. In 1988, he was appointed president and chief executive officer of the nearly 500,000-member cooperative, a position he held with great distinction. In 1991, he was named Group Health's first president emeritus. In addition, Davis made significant contributions to the cooperative health care system in the country. In the words of Seattle Mayor Norman Rice: Aubrey's idea of a cooperative is a commitment to helping other people.
