Starbucks COO Roz Brewer will be the new CEO of drugstore giant Walgreens, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
Brewer became COO at Starbucks in 2017 and also sits on the Seattle company’s board. She previously joined Walmart in 2006 and became president and CEO at Walmart-owned Sam’s Club.
Brewer, 58, has also been an Amazon board member since 2019. That makes her role at Walgreens intriguing, given Amazon’s aggressive push into healthcare in recent years and Walgreens’ cloud computing partnership with Microsoft.Geek Wire
