Ten Cigna executives will maintain their posts when the Bloomfield health insurer completes its $67 billion acquisition of pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts, the company said.

Cigna announced Thursday that several key executives will become members of the combined company's enterprise leadership team, including Chief Financial Officer Eric Palmer, Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Bacus and Matthew Manders, president of strategy and solutions.

As previously announced, Cigna President and CEO David Cordani will keep his title and Express Scripts President and CEO Tim Wentworth will lead the combined company's health services business as president.

Other executives retaining their titles under the Cigna-Express team include: Mark Boxer, chief information officer; Brian Evanko, president of government business; Nicole Jones, general counsel; Dr. Steven Miller, chief clinical officer; John Murabito, chief human resources officer; Jason Sadler, president of international markets and Michael Triplett, president of U.S. markets.

Last week, the companies announced the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division cleared their proposed deal, moving them closer to completing the transaction by year-end.

The deal still requires state regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.
