Walgreens realigns management roles toward Alliance Boots growth
Deerfield, Ill. -- Walgreens announced Tuesday several senior-management shifts intended to capitalize on its new partnership with Swiss drugstore chain Alliance Boots.
CFO Wade Miquelon is assuming an expanded and global leadership role at Walgreens as executive VP/CFO and president, international, leading a newly named Value Creation Services and International Division.
Current senior VP/chief strategy officer Robert Zimmerman will now lead a new Global Mergers and Acquisitions “synergy team” as senior VP international and international chief administration officer. He will also serve on the Alliance Boots board of directors.
Brad Fluegel has joined Walgreens as senior VP and chief strategy officer, charged with leading the company’s project management office and corporate consulting team, as well as work together with Zimmerman on the company’s venture capital efforts.
“These new roles will allow us to move forward aggressively, working closely together with Alliance Boots, to implement our strategic partnership and realize the extensive synergies from the acquisition,” Walgreens president and CEO Greg Wasson said.
