BABCPHL Board Member Feature – Neil Boyden Tanner

Neil Boyden Tanner serves as General Counsel for International Markets at Cigna, the global health services company. He manages all legal and compliance matters for the international businesses and manages lawyers and compliance professionals in multiple jurisdictions around the world. Previously, Neil was SVP and Chief Counsel for the U.S. businesses, responsible for all US business legal matters, and served as Secretary of the Board, responsible for all Board matters, securities law, governance matters, global subsidiary maintenance and treasury law matters.

Neil has been a member of the BABCPHL for more than two decades and remains involved for a variety of reasons – from amazing events on the latest issues to transatlantic networking, it provides valuable contacts and information that pays dividends for Cigna’s business. As a past President of the BABCPHL, Neil has said that his greatest memories include attending briefings by government leaders from both sides of the Atlantic (including former Presidents and Prime Ministers), giving presentations in the U.S. and the U.K., advising the U.K. government on various initiatives, and even dining with members of the royal family. However, his most fond memories about the BABCPHL are connected to the many relationships he has made over the years with other members, many of whom have become some of his closest professional contacts and friends.

During the pandemic, Neil has missed in-person interactions the most. Neil states, “while the BABCPHL has done an amazing job of continuing to provide important content and opportunities to network, nothing can replace in person meetings.” There have been some silver linings for Neil, though. The pandemic has given him the opportunity to spend a year at home. As an international lawyer, he travels constantly, but this year he has spent more time than ever before with his family. While this has been a wonderful experience for him, when restrictions are lifted, Neil does hope to return to the U.K. to see work colleagues, relatives, and friends and to restock his British supplies!
