BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Charlie Baker’s pick to head the state’s health care marketplace and website is stepping into the job a few weeks earlier than planned.

Baker tapped Louis Gutierrez last week to serve as executive director of the Massachusetts Health Connector, which oversees the state’s health insurance marketplace and website.

Gutierrez - a principal at the Massachusetts-based IT consulting firm Exeter Group - was scheduled to take over the post near the end of February, but now plans to start on Monday.

Interim Executive Director Maydad Cohen - a special assistant to former Gov. Deval Patrick who oversaw the relaunch of the website on Nov. 15 - is expected to stay on at the connector to help manage the project through the end of the open enrollment period.
