SCHAUMBURG, IL, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Catamaran Corp. (NASDAQ: CTRX, TSX: CCT), a leading provider of technology and pharmacy benefit management (PBM) services, today announced two executive appointments; Jeff Park has been promoted to the newly-created position of Executive Vice President, Operations, and Mike Shapiro will succeed him as SVP & Chief Financial Officer.

As EVP, Operations, Mr. Park will oversee all PBM Operations, IT, Product Development, Government Programs, Quality, Innovation and Legal activities.
