DUBLIN, Ohio, May 17, 2007 — Cardinal Health, a global provider of products and services that improve the safety and productivity of health care, today announced the appointment of Scott A. Storrer to lead its $70 billion pharmaceutical supply chain services business.

 

As group president of Healthcare Supply Chain Services-Pharmaceutical, Storrer, 40, will be responsible for pharmaceutical distribution, specialty pharmaceutical services, nuclear pharmacy services and Medicine Shoppe franchise operations.  He will report to Mark W. Parrish, chief executive officer of Healthcare Supply Chain Services for Cardinal Health.

 

“Scott is a hands-on leader with strong international experience and a proven track record of building strong customer relationships, developing valuable service offerings and driving great efficiency within the organizations he has previously led,” said Parrish.  “We’re very excited about what he brings to Cardinal Health.”

 

Storrer will join Cardinal Health on May 21 from Cigna Corp., a $16 billion company with 27,000 employees, where he served as executive vice president of Service Operations and Information Technology.

 

He began his career in 1989 as part of General Electric’s Financial Management Program and worked on several business acquisitions and integrations.  In 1993, he joined Liberty Mutual, where he held a variety of senior leadership roles of increasing responsibility, and served as a transition executive for several acquisitions, including the Ontario Blue Cross Blue Shield acquisition. Shortly thereafter, he became senior vice president and chief operating officer of Group Benefits.

 

He joined CIGNA in 2001 and became senior vice president and chief operations officer for the Group Disability and Life Business. In 2002, Storrer was appointed senior vice president of Service Operations for CIGNA HealthCare.

 

Storrer earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and mathematics from DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., in 1989 and a master’s degree in business administration from Boston University in 1993.

 

At Cardinal Health, Storrer will be responsible for one of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical supply chain businesses to hospitals, retail pharmacies and alternate-care sites.  The company makes more than 40,000 deliveries daily, including specialty blood and plasma products, and operates more than 140 specialized nuclear pharmacies.
