In ConnectiCare leadership shakeup, EmblemHealth names Moran CT ‘market president’

Three top executives have parted ways with health insurer ConnectiCare, officials with parent company EmblemHealth confirmed to the Hartford Business Journal on Tuesday.

In an interview, EmblemHealth CEO Karen Ignagni confirmed that ConnectiCare President Eric Galvin, Senior Vice President of Pharmacy and Medical Costs Robert Kosior and Senior Vice President of Sales Brian Pagliaro have left the company as part of a corporate restructuring.

The positions held by Galvin, Kosior and Pagliaro are not being filled as they have existed, according to EmblemHealth officials. Instead, Karen Moran, a Connecticut-based executive with EmblemHealth, will take over as “Connecticut market president.”

Company officials linked the shakeup to pandemic-induced pressures on the healthcare industry and the resulting need to make administration more efficient.

Ignagni reserved praise for Galvin, who has served as president since 2017.

“We are very grateful for everything he has done,” she said. “He has created something very important.”

Ignagni said the rest of the ConnectiCare leadership team will remain in place. She emphasized there would be no job losses in connection with the executive restructuring.

“Nothing changes for the people on the ground,” she said. “Our commitment to Connecticut is strong. We feel strongly about being here in Connecticut, and we want to make our presence here even stronger.”

ConnectiCare affiliate WellSpark will also remain intact, with Bert Wachtelhausen continuing on as president.

Ignagni said the company will be rolling out new services for members in 2022.
