John Cannon, credited with righting the ship at WellPoint Inc., was terminated without cause last week. The Indianapolis-based health insurer said Cannon will remain with the company until early March to help in the transition of his duties as general counsel and chief public affairs officer. Cannon, 60, served as WellPoint’s interim CEO from August 2012, when the company’s board ousted CEO Angela Braly under pressure from investors, until March 2013, when current CEO Joe Swedish took the helm. Cannon came to WellPoint from Philadelphia-based Cigna Corp., where he worked for 19 years, ultimately becoming deputy general counsel.
