Health insurer Anthem has hired Cynthia Ridgeway, a longtime attorney for the U.S. Justice Department, to be its corporate strategy director.
Ridgeway is first assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of Indiana. During her 15-year tenure at the U.S. attorney's office, she litigated high-profile white collar crimes and before that served as chief of the national security unit, according to a news announcement from the attorney's office. She is resigning effective July 29.
Anthem did not immediately respond to a question about Ridgeway's responsibilities at the company.
