Tim Wentworth Named CEO

May 4, 2016

Earlier today, May 4, following our annual shareholder meeting, Tim Wentworth became the third CEO in the history of Express Scripts.

Mr. Wentworth replaces George Paz, who has retired as Chief Executive Officer, but will continue as Chairman of the Board.

"I am honored to lead Express Scripts, a vital healthcare company powered by 30,000 people who are passionate about delivering the best pharmacy care to patients," said Mr. Wentworth. "Every day, we put medicine within reach of 85 million people by uniquely combining innovative solutions, specialized care and focused, industry-leading scale. I am excited about our future and how we will continue to change healthcare, while delivering better value, service and care to clients and patients."

"Tim is the right person to lead Express Scripts into the future," said Mr. Paz. "I have a high level of confidence in Tim that is shared by all of us who have seen him drive performance. I look forward to working with Tim, our senior leadership team and our Board as we continue to deliver for clients, patients and shareholders."

Mr. Wentworth was named President of Express Scripts in February 2014. As President, Mr. Wentworth was responsible for all aspects of the company's core business, including sales and account management, information technology, operations, research and new solutions, home delivery and specialty pharmacies, and supply chain management. Prior to his appointment as President, Mr. Wentworth served as Senior Vice President and President, Sales and Account Management, with responsibility for Express Scripts' core sales and account management teams, including employer groups, health plans, and new sales.

Mr. Wentworth joined Express Scripts following the company's merger with Medco Health Solutions, Inc. in April 2012. He previously led Medco's employer and key accounts organizations for nearly 14 years, and also served as President and CEO of Accredo, the company's specialty pharmacy. Prior to joining Medco, Mr. Wentworth spent five years at Mary Kay, Inc., where he initially served as Senior Vice President of Human Resources and subsequently as President, International. He also held roles of increasing responsibility in a nine-year career in human resources management at PepsiCo. He holds an associate's degree in business from Monroe Community College and a bachelor's degree in industrial and labor relations from Cornell University.
