Business Council Elects Gail K. Boudreaux as Chair

WASHINGTON , February 08 /Businesswire/ - The Business Council today announced that Gail Boudreaux, president and CEO of Elevance Health, has been appointed to serve as chair of the Business Council. Boudreaux succeeds Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in the role. Boudreaux will be the first woman to chair the Business Council in the group’s nearly 90-year history.

“I am incredibly honored to serve as the next chair of the Business Council at a pivotal time in our society,” said Gail K. Boudreaux, president and CEO, Elevance Health. “The Council provides an invaluable forum for global business leaders to come together to share, learn and inspire each other to innovate and solve for challenges in meaningful ways.”

Boudreaux leverages more than three decades of healthcare industry experience to lead one of America’s largest health companies, Elevance Health. The company, fueled by its purpose to improve the health of humanity, serves more than 119 million people through a diverse portfolio of industry-leading medical, digital, pharmacy, behavioral, clinical and complex care solutions.

The Business Council has evolved to be the only venue for the world’s top CEOs to gather and engage in professional, intellectual and leadership development. It is limited to 200 active members, each of whom is selected based on personal qualities and position as the chief executive officer of a leading multinational business.

“Gail Boudreaux is an extraordinary business leader with a long track record of delivering success,” said outgoing chair Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO of Microsoft. “Her more than three decades of experience driving change in healthcare, along with her ability to collaborate across stakeholders, is the perfect fit for The Business Council.”

“Gail has been a trailblazer for many years, starting with her days as a multi-sport all-American athlete,” said John Donahoe, president and CEO of NIKE, Inc. “Throughout her career, she creates real followership wherever she goes. We are fortunate to have her leading the Business Council in the coming years.”

“I can’t think of a better leader to serve as the next chair of The Business Council,” said Marlene M. Colucci, CEO of The Business Council. “As a member of the group, I’ve witnessed firsthand how Gail approaches the opportunity to innovate and drive business solutions. We are all delighted Gail has agreed to take on this broader role, and we look forward to advancing our mission together.”
