The leader of the combined venture will have to slash health care costs across 3 companies

The high-profile CEO trio of Berkshire Hathaway’s (NYSE:BRK.A, BRK.B) Warren Buffett, JPMorgan Chase’s (NUSE:JPM) Jamie Dimon, and Amazon.com’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Jeff Bezos have chosen a new chief to run their affordable health care partnership – but they're keeping the name to themselves for another two weeks, according to a CNBC report.

The new leader, who will spearhead this experimental health care venture, will have to work across three companies that boast more than a million employees combined in a bid to slash health care costs.

When asked by his employees at JPMorgan what the result of the health care partnership will be, according to CNBC, Dimon tends to reply: “We’re just going to try to do it better.”

“There are a lot of things that can be done better,” Dimon told CNBC Thursday. “We know the fraud, the administrative costs, we know overuse and underuse of various drugs and specialized procedures.”
