Walgreens Boots Alliance Names Tim Wentworth CEO – WWD

Walgreens Boots Alliance Names Tim Wentworth CEO – WWD

Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. has tapped Tim Wentworth as its recent chief executive officer because it moves further away from its drugstore origins and into healthcare.

Most recently, Wentworth was founding CEO of Evernorth, Cigna’s health services organization that partners with health plans, employers and government organizations. Prior to Cigna, Wentworth was CEO of Express Scripts, the most important pharmacy profit manager within the U.S., following the corporate’s merger with Medco Health Solutions Inc. in 2012.

“The WBA board has been focused on bringing in a CEO with deep health care experience, and we’re pleased to welcome Tim Wentworth as the corporate’s recent CEO,” said Stefano Pessina, executive chairman of Walgreens Boots Alliance. “He’s an achieved and revered leader with profound expertise within the payer and pharmacy space in addition to supply chain, IT and human resources. We’re confident he’s the correct person to guide WBA’s next phase of growth right into a customer-centric health care company.”

Roz Brewer revealed in September she was stepping down from the helm of Walgreens Boots Alliance and its board after two and a half years as the corporate dives deeper into health care, with each parties stressing the choice was mutual.

The previous chief operating officer of Starbucks and Sam’s Club executive was named CEO in March 2021, just as COVID-19 vaccines were becoming available to the American public. She built and led a team to establish the technology for a vaccine scheduling system, created a secure operating model for store labor, and developed a plan to drive vaccine equity. But the corporate has struggled to regain its footing since.
