The prison health care company Corizon has hired a corrections executive to become the new CEO.
The company announced on Thursday that James Hyman will be the new CEO starting Sept. 1. He replaces Steve Rector, who will serve as an advisor to the board of directors on an ongoing basis.
From 2015 to 2017, Hyman served as the CEO Community Education Centers, which provides offender reentry programs and in-prison treatment services in the U.S. and Bermuda. Prior to that he was the CEO of the private prison operator Cornell Companies, from 2005 to 2010.
