Dr. Richard J. Tubb

LexisNexis Special Services Inc. has appointed Dr. Richard J. Tubb, former chief White House physician, to its board of directors, the company announced on Wednesday.

“Dick’s experience as a physician, on health policies, and his leadership will be invaluable to LexisNexis Special Services and to the agencies we serve in this digital environment,” said Haywood Talcove, CEO and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, LexisNexis Special Services.

Tubb is the longest-serving White House Physician in U.S. history. He was assigned to the White House Medical Unit for 14 years and served in three presidential administrations from 1995 until 2009.

In his position, he led all healthcare services delivered to the President, the Vice President, the Cabinet, and their senior advisors. He also provided services at medical facilities within the White House, Camp David, the Western White House, and aboard executive aircraft, including Air Force One, Marine One, and Air Force Two.

In addition, Tubb served as a charter member of the University of Virginia’s Forum for Civil Dialogue on Tobacco, Nicotine, and Alternative Product Harm Reduction between Jan. 2013 and April 2016. Tubb was the first and only scientific and clinical non-executive board member for the largest publicly traded tobacco company in the world and a global leader in the reduced risk nicotine products that are transforming the tobacco industry.

Between Jan. 2009 and July 2010, Tubb served as a board member with the U.S. Air Force Academy Board of Visitors. As a board member, Tubb provided the Secretary of Defense independent advice and recommendations on the morale, discipline, and social climate, the curriculum, instruction, physical equipment, fiscal affairs, academic methods, and other matters relating to the Academy.

“I am looking forward to working alongside men and women of character who all have a lifetime of experience and excellence,” said Tubb.  “I want to leverage what the government group of LexisNexis Risk Solutions does best on behalf of the people who need it most—my patients, and those of every healer across the country, and those who also support them. Do well by doing good.”
