Gail Boudreaux, CEO of GKB Global HealthBoudreaux from 2011 to 2014 was CEO of UnitedHealthcare, UnitedHealth Group’s largest division and one of the largest health insurers in the United States. In an era when “value” and winning reimbursement for products is increasingly important for medical device makers, Boudreaux could be an intriguing choice to fill the top spot at Zimmer Biomet.
Boudreaux is already on Zimmer Biomet’s board of directors, too.
Wells Fargo analyst Larry Biegelsen lists Boudreaux as a potential candidate.
Here’s a fun extra fact: Boudreaux was a standout women’s basketball player at Dartmouth from 1978 through 1982, so she’d fit right in working with Hoosiers.
