Stocks in this article: WLP

WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) announced today that Jose Tomas has been named executive vice president and chief human resources officer, effective December 2, 2013. Tomas replaces Randy Brown who announced earlier this year that he would retire at the end of December. In this role, Tomas will focus on attracting, developing and retaining talent across the company, compensation and benefits, workforce development, diversity management and associate engagement. Additionally, he will play a vital role in helping WellPoint foster a unified and inclusive culture, further positioning the company for success in this rapidly changing health care environment.

“We are pleased to add such a talented and experienced executive to our leadership team. Jose’s background, which includes senior-level experience in all facets of human resources as well as executive operational leadership experience, ideally positions him for this role,” said Joseph R. Swedish, WellPoint’s chief executive officer. “Randy Brown played an important role as part of the leadership team that has built WellPoint into one of the nation's leading health benefits companies and I thank him for his contributions and wish him all the best in his retirement.”

Prior to joining WellPoint, Tomas served as Global Chief People Officer and President, Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) for Burger King Corporation (BKC) where he was responsible for the company’s global human resources and communications functions and simultaneously led all operations, marketing, business development, purchasing, supply and distribution functions for the LAC region. Prior to joining BKC in 2004, Tomas held various field and corporate human resources positions with Ryder System Inc. and Publix Super Markets.

Tomas holds a bachelor's degree in business administration and a master's in management from Florida International University. He is certified by the Human Resources Certification Institute as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), and currently serves as a board member for the Society for Human Resource Management.
