Julie Rose of WFAE stumps NC Blue Cross CEO Brad Wilson

Julie Rose of WFAE in Charlotte interviewed NC Blue Cross CEO Brad Wilson. She asked some interesting questions – but here is one of the most interesting, specifically for Wilson’s amazing claims of ignorance of a key decision made just a few months ago while he was CEO:

Rose: What was Mr. Gretchen’s [should be Greczyn] retirement package when he left?

Wilson : I have no idea

Rose: You have no idea?

Wilson: No.

Rose: You’re the CEO of the company.

Wilson: I was not the CEO of the company relative to his retirement package. I mean you’d have to ask him that question.

Rose: Is that something that Blue Cross and Blue Shield is interested in sharing, or something that you would divulge?

Wilson: No.

    What is a “CEO of the company relative to his retirement package”?

    Does Blue Cross have a CEO of retirement packages?
