of important leadership roles, including responsibility for treasury
and capital management for CIGNA International, serving as chief
executive officer of CIGNA's Hong Kong operations and as vice
president of life operations in Southeast Asia prior to assuming his
current role as chief executive officer of CIGNA's Asia-Pacific

products and services through affinity partners," Hanway said.

England, and is an FCA. He is also a fellow of the Institute of
Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. He will become a member
of CIGNA's executive management team. His successor for CIGNA
International's leader in the Asia-Pacific region will be identified
