Cigna Corp. has named Greg Allen as president of its Tennessee market.
Allen, 45, began working in the newly created position earlier this month. He'll oversee the Bloomfield, Conn.-based insurer's products and services in the state, including employer-based group benefit plans, individual plans and Medicare plans.
Prior to his new role, Allen worked in several positions in Cigna-HealthSpring, a subsidiary offering Medicare Advantage and Part D plans. He joined HealthSpring when it was founded in 2000 and stayed on after it was acquired by Cigna in 2011.
Most recently, Allen led Cigna-HealthSpring's Alabama and Tennessee markets and earlier served as president of HealthSpring's Tennessee market, which is one of the company's largest Medicare Advantage markets.
Prior to working at Cigna, Allen was director of finance for HealthSpring's predecessor company, North American Medical Management, a physician management firm. He's also worked as a financial analyst for Prudential Financial's healthcare division and Aetna.
Indianapolis-based insurance giant Anthem announced in July that it would acquire Cigna in a $54.2 billion deal. If approved, the combined company will have $115 billion in revenue.
