Cardinal Health has announced that Stephen Mason, formerly President of the Cardinal Health at-Home Solutions business, has been promoted to Chief Executive Officer of Cardinal Health's Medical segment.

According to Cardinal, Mason will take over the role when current CEO Jon Giacomin leaves in August, building on his 20-year career within the firm that has seen him work within both the medical and pharmaceutical sides of the international business.

In his most recent position, Mr Mason has been responsible for overseeing at-Home Solutions, consistently delivering strong growth. According to Mike Kaufmann, CEO of Cardinal Health, if his proven approach is applied to the Medical segment of the business, Mr Mason's promotion could prove a turning point for this important sub-branch of Cardinal.

Mr Kaufmann 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."

Mr Mason has also suggested that he plans to boost the growth and profitability of the business, which could allow the company to take advantage of new opportunities as it seeks to expand.

"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."
