LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies, announced today that two of its executive officers have assumed additional areas of responsibility for the company.

Tim Huval has been named Chief Administrative Officer, with responsibilities for the Corporate Marketing, Human Resources, Workplace Solutions, Inclusion and Diversity, and Safety and Security functions.

Sam Deshpande has been named Chief Technology and Risk Officer, where he will oversee the Information Technology organization, with continuing responsibility for leading Risk Management and Compliance.

Both Huval and Deshpande are members of Humana’s Management Team, which sets the firm’s strategic direction, and will continue to report to President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Broussard.

“These role expansions for Tim and Sam represent ways we’re leveraging the broad experiences of our executive team to increase our operating efficiencies, with the ultimate goal being to create value for our customers,” Broussard said. “We’re not only enabling new development opportunities for our key leaders, but also increasing Humana’s speed of execution. The combination of Tim’s significant operational experience and consumer focus, along with Sam’s deep understanding of how information technology underpins consumer experiences and our integrated care delivery model makes them ideally suited to take on these new responsibilities.”

Huval has served as Humana’s Chief Human Resources Officer since joining the company in December 2012. During this time, he has worked closely with business segment and operational leaders in helping guide the enterprise through a period of significant change and success, as Humana’s annual revenue has grown by more than 60 percent during his tenure.

He served as Head of Consumer Card Operations, Head of Consumer Service Operations, Head of Mortgage Operations, and as Chief Information Officer for Global Wealth & Investment.
