Additionally, Brian led Cigna's individual supplemental business (CSB) to meaningful growth following Cigna's entrance into this market in 2012, resulting in more than doubling its customers and revenue in four years.
Prior to that, Brian served as Business Financial Officer for Cigna's Global Individual Health, Life and Accident operations based in Hong Kong and Singapore from 2009 to 2013. Brian has also held various roles across Cigna's U.S. and International businesses in Hartford, Conn., and Philadelphia, Penn.
