HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark T. Bertolini today announced the appointment of Karen S. Rohan, 51, as president of Aetna (NYSE: AET). In addition to her current responsibilities leading Local and Regional businesses, Rohan will oversee the National, Government, and Specialty businesses, reporting directly to Bertolini.

I look forward to working with her over time as we strive to build a healthier world.”

Joseph M. Zubretsky will remain senior executive vice president, and will now focus solely on leading the Healthagen organization. “Healthagen is a critical component of Aetna’s strategy as we work to transform the network model,” said Bertolini. “Joe’s demonstrated leadership in this rapidly evolving marketplace will be an important element of our enduring success.”

These changes will take effect January 1, 2015.
