In his new role, Arjan will lead the newly combined operational structure, which includes international organisations, European employers and the company’s solutions for globally mobile individuals. This new structure will allow CIGNA to deliver affordable whole health solutions and accelerate innovation to better meet the needs of customers, clients, communities and partners.
Previously Chief Marketing Officer for Cigna International Markets based in Hong Kong, and more recently CEO of CIGNA International Organisations, Africa and Global IPMI, Arjan will be taking over Phil Austin’s role. Phil will now be taking on a broader role as Head of Strategy and Global Business Development for CIGNA International Markets.
“This is an extremely exciting time for CIGNA,” said Arjan. “We operate in an environment with increasing customer expectations. Our new, streamlined organisation allows a greater drive for affordability for our clients, while also helping us create a more tailored and personalised service in markets across the globe. At a time when the cost of healthcare is rising by up to 12 per cent each year and employers want localised solutions for globally mobile individuals, our new organisational structure will be crucial to helping us continue to provide industry-leading, tailored and affordable whole health solutions.”
