As SVP of CIGNA Information Technology since June 2008, Philip Emond has been responsible for the delivery of end-to-end technology solutions in support of CIGNA’s businesses. Next month, Emond will take over for Michael Woeller, CIGNA’s U.S. operations’ EVP and CIO, who will retire.

David Cordani, president and CEO of CIGNA made the announcement, saying, “For the past three years, Mike [Woeller] has ably led CIGNA's Information Technology division. During that time, the technology organization has evolved significantly to better meet the changing needs of today’s market, the team has been strengthened, and succession has been proactively planned—part of which included adding Phil to the team in 2008. From the start, Phil has demonstrated a deep understanding of technology innovation in the healthcare industry and has shown strong leadership qualities, passion for our customers and a focus on consistently delivering results,” he says. “In naming Phil to this role, CIGNA will continue to build on the solid foundation Mike has established in partnership with Phil and the entire CIGNA technology team.”
