The Maine Medical Association has named an attorney as its new leader.

Interim CEO Andrew MacLean is set to take the helm as CEO starting Aug. 1.

The previous CEO, Gordon Smith, now directs statewide opioid response efforts for Democratic Gov. Janet Mills.

Past president Charles Pattavina said MacLean’s background of nearly 30 years in health care, law and politics will benefit physicians in the state.

MacLean served as legal counsel and health policy aide to former Republican Gov. John McKernan.

MacLean is a Bridgton native and graduated from Duke University and the University of Maine School of Law.
