WellPoint general counsel promoted to CEO, the only woman CEO of US’s 50 largest companies

Angela Braly, who currently serves as WellPoint’s executive vice president, general counsel and chief public affairs officer, will become the CEO of the nation’s largest health insurer. According to USA Today, Feb. 27, 2007 at 3B, Braly has been with the company since 1999. It also points out that 58 percent of the company’s management ranks are women (See my post of Jan. 27, 2006 regarding promotions of male general counsel to the CEO office.).

Congratulations, Ms. Braly, on putting another crack in the glass ceiling.
