Under Karen’s leadership, CVS Health touches the lives of more than 100 million people each year through its unique combination of assets, including more than 9,900 pharmacies and over 1,000 MinuteClinic and HealthHUB locations. CVS Health also serves an estimated 34 million people through its health insurance products and services. CVS Health continues to play a leading role in the national response to COVID-19 through testing solutions and vaccine administration across the country.

Karen has over three decades of experience in the health care industry. Prior to becoming Chief Executive Officer, she was Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President of Aetna and responsible for driving the strategy to deliver consumer-focused, high-value health care to the millions of people Aetna serves.

Lynch garnered the top spot for two big reasons: Shortly after taking over in February of this year, she made CVS a central player in the US pandemic response, turning it into a hub for Covid tests and vaccines. And she now wants to transform how primary health care is delivered by turning many neighborhood CVS stores into health care super clinics.
