He also served as chief underwriting officer, directing the organization’s overall pricing, analytics and risk management strategies, and developing financial solutions to help clients manage their pharmacy spend. 

Prior to his time at Magellan Rx, Kamal held various roles with Medco Health Solutions, Inc.
