Brent Gardner

Vice President, Operations, eviCore healthcare

Born in Orlando and growing up in the area, Brent is a proud native of central Florida. He didn’t travel far to continue his higher education, attending UCF in the 1990s. He graduated in 1998 with a B.S. in Biology and bleeds black and gold!

Beginning his professional career before even leaving UCF, Brent has amassed 25 years of experience, nearly entirely with Fortune 500/100 organizations. Ranging between telecommunications and healthcare industries, the majority of his roles have been in leadership capacities, ranging from entry level management to more senior level general management. Brent’s expertise and background lies mostly in Business Operations where he has spent the majority of his career, along with time in IT leadership roles. He has spent the past seven years working for eviCore healthcare, a health services subsidiary of Cigna.

In his role as an Operations Vice President at eviCore, Brent is responsible for delivering end-to-end operations solutions for national client accounts. This oversight runs the gamut from exceeding business unit performance targets and achieving client contractual performance guarantees to delivery of financial results and broad employee development, to name a few. In total, Brent’s current organization spans nearly 800 employees and more than $30 million in annual operating expenses for clients representing hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

Brent further invested in his business and career acumen in recent years, completing his MBA. He is most proud, though, of what he has achieved with his family, including his wife (also a Knight!) and three children (future Knights!). As a group, they focus regularly on high school academics, sports, time at the beach, fishing, and of course, cheering on the Knights! Charge On!
