Cigna has named Javier Cano as managing director of its Global Health Benefits business in Europe.
Cano joined Cigna in 2006 as business development director for the Spanish business.
In 2010 he launched Cigna's individual private medical insurance business in Europe, building new direct channels alongside established intermediary distribution.
Cano then became Spain country manager for Cigna in 2011 where he has successfully grown the business across the individual, domestic and global benefits' segments. He will continue to lead Cigna's business in Spain as part of his new role.
He said:"I'm delighted to bring together Cigna's resources in Europe at a time when global mobility and demand for health benefits are both increasing. There's no doubt that global mobility has an important part to play in economic growth. I'm confident that Cigna is well-positioned to support the different global health benefits' needs of employers across Europe."
While Cano continues to be based in Madrid, he leads a team operating across Europe with key operational hubs in UK, Belgium and Spain.
Currently, Cigna provides global health care benefits and related services to more than one million customers worldwide.
