Barry Smith is stepping down as chairman and CEO of Magellan Health Inc.

The announcement comes in the wake of a high-profile activist investor shaking up the board of the Scottsdale-based managed care and pharmacy benefits company in the wake of share price declines.

He was elected to the board in 2011, named CEO in January 2013 and executive chairman in January 2014.
