Annmarie Hagan is succeeding Michael Bell as executive vice president and chief financial officer of Cigna Corp., effective May 26. Bell, 45, who has worked at Cigna for 25 years and has been CFO since 2002, has resigned from the company. No specific reason was given for Bells departure, except that it was a logical next step in Cignas succession planning following the announcement of David Cordani as president and COO in June 2008, company spokeswoman Gloria Barone said in an e-mail. Hagan, 48, has been chief accounting officer for the insurer since 2001 and controller since 2008. J. Fred Earley, 52, was selected to take the helm as president of Mountain State Blue Cross and Blue Shield on July 1. Earley, who joined the health plan 20 years ago, succeeds Gregory Smith, 58, who is retiring. For the past 15 years, Earley has served as senior vice president and general counsel of the Parkersburg, W.Va.-based not-for-profit insurer.
