David Snow – WINNER
Medco's chief is finally able to turn the reins over to Express Scripts for a whopping $32 billion, over the concerns of critics who say the deal will kill any sense of competition from the marketplace.
Greg Brown – LOSER

Shlomo Yanai – WINNER
The outgoing Teva Pharmaceutical CEO got a sit-down with Christie on the governor's Israeli voyage, and Christie hinted that the company may further bolster its New Jersey presence as a result — Teva already employs several hundred in two North Jersey offices.
George Norcross – LOSER
