Walgreens names veteran health care executive Tim Wentworth as next CEO


Walgreens has named medical industry veteran and executive Tim Wentworth as its next chief executive officer (CEO), effective immediately. Wentworth has served in various leadership roles at the company over the past three years, most recently as president and executive vice president.

Wentworth succeeds former CEO Stefano Pessina, who will continue as executive chairman of Walgreens’ parent company, Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA). Pessina will work with Wentworth to lead the company’s transformation strategy, focused on advancing the organization’s consumer-centric and digital-first model.

Prior to joining Walgreens, Wentworth was a senior-level executive at Express Scripts, where he held numerous positions, including senior vice president of automated services and commercial care.

“Tim is a strong leader who has brought passion and fresh thinking to his roles at Walgreens over the last three years,” Pessina said. “He is a leader who knows how to drive growth and embrace change, and he is well-positioned to accelerate Walgreens transformation.”

Wentworth is currently charged with the task of developing and executing the company’s long-term growth and transformation strategy, while striving to create value and serve customers in new and innovative ways. His main focus will be developing and leveraging the company’s digital assets, expanding its core business, and increasing its presence in the healthcare industry.
