Aetna CEO, Ilitch School alumnus Mark Bertolini speaks at Detroit Economic Club

Mark Bertolini, the Detroit native who is chairman and CEO of Aetna Inc., got a reaction out of a hometown crowd Monday in a speech at the Detroit Economic Club in response to a question about whether Aetna would consider moving to Detroit.

After a 20-minute speech at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham on how companies like Aetna are investing in communities and their workforce to achieve long-term financial and human capital success, Roy Wilson Jr., M.D., president of Wayne State University, asked Bertolini about whether Detroit could be the new corporate headquarters of Aetna.
