Gary M. Wimberly, 2014 Honoree

Senior vice president and CIO
Express Scripts
St. Louis
How many times have you had to reinvent yourself in your career?
Early on, I transitioned from a leadership position at a small conglomerate to a Big Five management consulting firm to focus on speed and integration. That expertise enables me to lead a large IT organization in healthcare, an industry with the greatest potential for the application of technology to improve lives.
Quick ROI project:
The integration of Express Scripts and Medco into a $93 billion organization that serves 100 million Americans and brings together the best practices of both organizations to benefit payers and patients by reducing waste and improving health outcomes.
A recent innovative staff idea:
Advancing our mobile technology to enable our patients to make optimal health and pharmacy decisions and reduce costs. Our mobile app isn't standard -- we have users granting us permission to deliver messages and alerts that can help them not only save money but also, more importantly, improve and potentially save their lives.
