Senior Walgreens manager moves to Alliance Boots
A senior Walgreens manager has been appointed as the UK director of healthcare, health and beauty, at Alliance Boots. Richard Ashworth, a pharmacist, moves from his position as Walgreens corporate operations vice-president for the Western US.
Stefano Pessina, executive chairman of Alliance Boots, said: "[Richard Ashworth’s] appointment further illustrates the progress we continue to make towards achieving our vision for the creation of the first global health and wellbeing enterprise."
In June 2012, Alliance Boots announced that it had entered into a strategic partnership with the Walgreen Company, the largest pharmacy chain in the US.
