Walgreens Boots Alliance announced a fresh slate of top executives on Friday as new CEO Roz Brewer assembles her team and aims to revive the brand.
Brewer was appointed CEO in mid-March. She is the former chief operating officer of Starbucks. She took over the job at a time when the drugstore chain is chasing new growth opportunities and trying to stay relevant as more people buy items and fill prescriptions online.
Among its efforts, the company plans to open doctor’s offices with primary-care company VillageMD. It has revamped its mobile app and loyalty program. And it has added new ways to get online purchases quickly, such as curbside pickup in as little as 30 minutes.
Brewer said the new hires will play a key role with that.
“They will be instrumental in continuing to build momentum across our business, as we further innovate, and work to define the future of health and well-being in the communities we serve for many years to come,” she said in a press release.
