10. Sean Slovenski

SVP, president of health and wellness, Wal-Mart

Sean Slovenski is a healthcare and wellness industry innovator with a 24-year track record of success. He joined Wal-Mart this summer, as the company looks to put more focus on its health and wellness business. Earlier in his career, Slovenski spent three years at Humana, rising to become VP of innovation.

Humana and Wal-Mart work together on prescription drug plans for individuals in the Medicare program. But when Slovenski joined Wal-Mart, it prompted speculation the company would form a closer partnership with his former employer. However, analysts said an August announcement about closer cooperation between Wal-Mart and Anthem on providing consumers OTC medications makes other healthcare mergers less likely.

Most recently, Slovenski was president of population health at Healthways, now part of digital health company Sharecare. Wal-Mart recently teamed up with Sharecare to give staffers access to resources to monitor their health. Before that, he ran Care Innovations, a healthcare partnership between Intel and General Electric.
