Executive talent particularly in IT is hard to come by, but fortunately for McKesson they were able to lure Nancy Flores away from Johnson Controls where she was CIO. At McKesson she will occupy the positions of EVP, CIO and CTO.
She will be replacing Kathy McElligott. McKesson CEO Brian Tyler commented, “Kathy has helped McKesson increase its focus on data and analytics and accelerate our technology modernization. A tremendous leader, Kathy built strong teams, attracted top talent, and was a force internally and externally to support and encourage more women in technology.”
And with regards to Nancy, Tyler states, “Nancy comes to us with a long track record of success, including with decades of experience in healthcare,” further adding, “Her experience leading strategic global technology and driving exceptional customer experience will help McKesson improve healthcare in every setting by leveraging technology solutions for our company, our customers and business partners.”
Prior to Jonson controls Nancy services as vice president of business and technology services at Abbott Laboratories where she held a number of leadership roles over a 22 year period.
Based in Irving, Texas, McKesson employs over 24,000 professionals in the healthcare field.
