BLOOMFIELD, Conn., November 18, 2011 - Cigna (NYSE: CI) today announced that it has made changes to its Enterprise Leadership team to be better positioned as a customer centric organization and deliver on its Go Deep, Go Global, Go Individual strategy. Matthew G. Manders, currently the Company's President of U.S. Services, Clinical and Specialty businesses, has taken on expanded leadership responsibilities, including the Company's Regional Segments, effective immediately. His new title is President Regional and Operations. Manders has been in his current role over two years. In more than 24 years with Cigna he has proven leadership skills demonstrated through his assumption of increasingly responsible roles.
David D. Guilmette, currently the Senior Vice President, National Accounts Segment, has become President of National, Pharmacy and Product, effective immediately. Guilmette joined Cigna in February 2010 to lead the National Accounts Segment. Prior to joining Cigna, Guilmette was Managing Director of Towers Perrin's Health and Welfare line of business.
"With Matt and Dave in these new roles we are well positioned to continue to grow, organically and inorganically, and leverage the pending HealthSpring acquisition," said Chief Executive Officer David M. Cordani. "The U.S. leadership team structure is critical and drives the integrated model that allows Cigna to uniquely deliver on our brand promise and further drive our growth strategy."
Manders and Guilmette will be based in Bloomfield.
