Anthem Inc. yesterday announced that executive vice president and president of commercial and specialty business division Ken Goulet will retire from the company this summer.
“During his 11-year career at Anthem, Ken has committed his considerable talents to serving our company in a number of progressive general management roles,” President and CEO Joseph Swedish said. “In his current position, Ken’s strong work ethic and dedication to our customers have served to drive the success of our commercial and specialty business. Ken has also been an important leader within our Anthem organization and has been widely recognized for his loyalty to our company, his team, and all of our employees.”
Goulet will continue in his role for the next few months to help smooth the shift of his responsibilities to his replacement, who is yet to be named.
"On behalf of the Anthem board of directors and our executive leadership team, I would like to thank Ken for his service and wish him and his family our very best as they begin a new chapter in their lives,” Swedish said.
