Under Nagle’s leadership, Envision created a new business model which won numerous industry awards and today, it is one of the world’s largest and most influential PBMs. Described as “a Renaissance man among investors,” Nagle is now president and sole owner of The Nagle Company, Inc, a holding company which includes shopping malls, real estate assets and sports franchises.
