WellPoint, a health benefits company, has realigned its operations, technology and government services unit based on the retirement of Mark Boxer, president and CEO of that organization.

Effective July 1, 2008, Mr Boxer will retire from WellPoint, and the company will not be replacing him in that role.

Through this transition, Lori Beer, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, will become the company’s acting chief information officer, reporting directly to Angela Braly, president and CEO of WellPoint.

The company’s service operations unit will report to Ken Goulet, president and CEO of WellPoint’s commercial business unit. In addition, Sandy Miller, senior vice president of federal government solutions, will report to Randall Lewis, WellPoint’s executive vice president of audit and compliance.
