McKesson strategy exec to depart
McKesson has announced executive departure. Bansi Nagji, executive vice president and chief strategy and business development officer, will step down from his role effective March 31.
Nagji has agreed to continue employment with the company for several weeks to assist with transition activities. McKesson is currently conducting a comprehensive search and expects to name Nagji’s successor within the next few months.
“For the past five years, Bansi has been a critical member of our executive team and has played an important role in key acquisitions and the evolution of our strategy to reposition McKesson in a rapidly-evolving market,” said McKesson CEO Brian Tyler. “We are grateful for his many contributions which have strengthened our core business and created new areas of growth. With the recent completion of our successful exit from Change Healthcare, and in the context of the company’s headquarters move to Dallas, Bansi and I agreed that this was the right time for this transition. We appreciate Bansi’s commitment to remain with the company for an interim period to assist with the transition of his responsibilities and wish him all the best as he begins his successful next chapter.”
Prior to joining McKesson in 2015, Nagji served as a principal of Deloitte Consulting, where he led the U.S. Strategy Service Line and the Global practice of Monitor Deloitte, which was formed by the global merger of Monitor Group with Deloitte in January 2013. He was instrumental in the integration of Monitor into Deloitte’s operations. Before the merger with Deloitte, Nagji was president of Monitor Group. Nagji has served on several boards, including Change Healthcare.
