BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The official in charge of Maryland’s glitch-ridden health exchange is stepping down.

Chairman Joshua Sharfstein, released a statement Friday, saying:

“The Board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange has accepted the resignation of executive director Rebecca Pearce. Ms. Pearce worked tirelessly and with tremendous dedication to build Maryland Health Connection over more than two years.  The Board thanks her for her service and wishes her well in the future. The Board has named Carolyn Quattrocki to serve as interim executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange.”

According to WJZ’s media partner, The Baltimore Sun, Pearce took a seven-day trip to the Cayman Islands last week with her family.

Meanwhile, in Annapolis, lawmakers grilled health officials about why the online insurance marketplace was still broken.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who led the program, told The Sun he didn’t know Pearce planned to leave town until she was already gone.
