According to the company, Cirillo will replace Artemis Emslie, who will stay with myMatrixx until the end of May to assist with the transition.
Cirillo’s main role within myMatrixx is to ensure that the strategic direction of the company is set, and to help myMatrixx grow the business and assist with integration activities already underway since Express Scripts acquired myMatrixx in May 2017.
Michael Donnelly, the vice president and general manager of the Pharmacy Division at Express Scripts, said he was excited to see Cirillo take up the position and stated that he’s well prepared for the job at hand.
“We are pleased to welcome Mike to the organization,” Donnelly said. “With more than 25 years of leadership experience in workers’ compensation, claims management and pharmacy, Mike is well poised to lead this organization.”
Most recently, Cirillo served as president of Specialty Solutions Rx, where he helped deliver cost-reduction solutions to national accounts and payers by enabling better patient outcomes.
He holds an MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from Western New England College.
“Through merging the core capabilities of Express Scripts and myMatrixx, the organization continues to deliver superior clinical expertise, advanced analytics and customized client experiences,” Donnelly said.
According to Express Scripts, myMatrixx continues to pursue solutions to the opioid epidemic with double-digit decreases in opioid spending over the last few years.
