WellPoint’s Pat Murphy Named to Treasury & Risk Magazine’s ’40 Under 40′

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) announced today that Pat Murphy, staff vice president of corporate reporting and analysis, was named to Treasury & Risk’s “40 under 40” as an outstanding corporate financial executive under the age of 40.

Murphy was selected, in part, because of his work in co-leading efforts to build a company-wide performance reporting framework that gives executives quick access to information on business drivers and financial data.

“I’m honored by this recognition and believe it’s important to realize that my work is part of a team effort to provide key financial and operational information to WellPoint’s business leaders so that they can make decisions to best serve the needs of our customers and members,” said Murphy, who joined WellPoint in 2005. “WellPoint seeks to simplify the connection between health, care and value, and it’s very rewarding for me to play a role in making that goal a reality.”

Murphy joined WellPoint as assistant controller after serving as a senior financial analyst and lead auditor at Eli Lilly & Company and senior manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Pat earned a bachelor of science degree in business from Indiana University.

“Pat’s contributions to the finance and business teams are critical to our understanding of the key drivers in health care today,” said Wayne DeVeydt, executive vice president and chief financial officer for WellPoint. “His recognition is well-deserved and speaks to the strong bench of financial talent we have throughout the company.” DeVeydt was recognized on the same list in 2005.

According to the magazine, Treasury & Risk’s “40 under 40” list is “compiled from suggestions that it receives from readers and from best-practices finance departments and treasuries. The selection takes into account not only the executives’ title, the companies where they have worked and their responsibilities, but also the contributions they have made.”
