Chair and CEO, The Cigna Group
The Cigna Group is the holding company for Cigna Healthcare, which provides health benefits, and Evernorth Health Services, which includes Express Scripts, MDLive and other pharmacy and healthcare services. Cordani, CEO since 2009, was appointed as board chair in 2022. The same year, Evernorth entered into a multi-year collaboration with–and invested in–VillageMD, one of the largest primary care groups in the U.S. That investment supported VillageMD’s $8.9 billion purchase of Summit Health-CityMD, part of the company’s growth strategy. Under Cordani’s leadership, Cigna is prioritizing pay equity; the company says it is on track to achieve full parity for female and underrepresented employees by 2024. Cordani joined Cigna in 1991 and has held many senior leadership roles over the years. He is on the board of directors of America’s Health Insurance Plans.
