The BusinessWeek 50 Ranking

10

Aetna

THOUGH NEW TO the top job, Williams has been a key player in the much lauded turnaround at Aetna. The industry veteran worked alongside former CEO Jack Rowe to tighten up operations, winnow membership rolls, improve program offerings, and return the Hartford health insurer to profitability. The result: total returns of 385% to shareholders over the past three years. Now Williams is looking to build on Aetna’s innovations in areas like consumer-driven health care and disease management programs. In a fastconsolidating industry, though, the first big move by Aetna’s new boss may be a significant acquisition or merger.
