Medtronic, Aetna CEOs aren’t the only execs tweeting, here are 8 more to follow
In other industries like tech and media, all of the big players’ CEOs are on Twitter – Marissa Mayer, Steve Forbes and Michael Dell, just to name a few. But leaders of big healthcare companies haven’t shown as much gusto in that regard.
It’s somewhat of a novelty to find an active top executive of a hospital, pharmaceutical company, medical device company or insurer on Twitter, so when we found these, we had to share. These execs are tweeting not just about their companies but about entrepreneurship, policy and healthcare in general.
Omar Ishrak, president and CEO, Medtronic (@MedtronicCEO). These days, the Medtronic CEO is much more apt to sharing 140-character tidbits of his life and Medtronic – his account is significantly more active than it was this time last year.

Glen Giovannetti, global life sciences leader, Ernst & Young, (@GlenGiovannetti) tweets about biotech, entrepreneurship and patient-centered care.
