BY Sandra Levy

Cardinal Health announced that Stephen Mason, president of the company’s Cardinal Health at-Home Solutions business, has been promoted to CEO of Cardinal Health’s medical segment.

Mason will succeed Jon Giacomin, who will be departing the company in mid-August to assume a CEO position at a privately-held company.

He is a highly accomplished 20-year veteran of Cardinal Health and has successfully led several businesses within both Cardinal Health’s medical and pharmaceutical segments, the company said.

“We are pleased to name Steve Mason as the new CEO of our medical segment. He is a proven leader who has consistently generated positive results in every business he has led within the company. With Steve at the helm, we look forward to building on the steady progress underway in the medical segment as we continue to execute on our strategy to generate improved performance and long-term growth,” Cardinal Health CEO, Mike Kaufmann said. “We want to thank Jon Giacomin for his many contributions to Cardinal Health over the years and wish him well.”

Since 2016, Mason has overseen Cardinal Health at-Home Solutions, a component of the medical segment. Prior to that, he led Cardinal Health’s Kinray pharmaceutical distribution business. Mason also has deep experience leading sales, sales operations, and sourcing teams within the company’s pharmaceutical distribution business, including the consumer health, sales administration, retail independent sales and retail national accounts teams.

“I am excited to take on responsibility for our medical segment and to work with our talented team of leaders to continue to position our medical businesses to best serve our customers and the healthcare community while, very importantly, meeting our long-term growth and profitability objectives. I am confident in the plans we have in place to deliver on our strategy,” Mason said.
