LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(Business Wire)--
Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation`s leading health and well-being
companies, announced today that Tim Huval has been appointed Senior Vice
President and Chief Human Resources Officer. He will serve on the company`s
Executive Team and report to President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce
Broussard. 

A 10-year veteran of Bank of America, Huval served most recently as the bank`s
Senior Vice President for Consumer Service and Operations. In that capacity he
led thousands of customer-service professionals who serve 57 million Bank of
America customers. He also served as Human Resources Executive and as Chief
Information Officer for Bank of America`s global investment management group and
as Operations Executive for its Global Card Services division. 

"What`s impressive about Tim`s career at Bank of America is that he was
hand-picked on several occasions to solve critical business challenges in areas
that go well beyond the scope of traditional HR," Broussard said. "He was
successful in 100 percent of those challenges. Though he has held multiple
senior-level roles, his passion has always been HR." 

"I am honored to join Humana and eager to take on the company`s HR opportunities
and challenges," Huval said. "Besides being a leading health and well-being
company, Humana is in the people business. That`s what`s most exciting and
motivating to me." 

Huval replaces Bonnie Hathcock, the company`s Chief Human Resources Officer from
1999 to 2012, who retired Dec. 31. He earned a master`s degree in public
administration from Brigham Young University, a bachelor`s degree in marketing
from Weber State and an associate degree in business management from Salt Lake
Community College.
