Walgreens Taps Rosalind Brewer as New CEO

Rosalind Brewer is poised to become the only Black woman leading a Fortune 500 company, as Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. named the former Starbucks Corp. chief operating officer (COO) as its next CEO.

Brewer will replace Stefano Pessina, who announced he would step down once the company found a new leader — Pessinna is one of Walgreens’ biggest individual investors and will stay on the company’s board and serve as executive chairman.

Before joining Starbucks, Brewer was CEO of Walmart Inc.’s Sam’s Club division for five years. Brewer, 58, will join Walgreens and its board on March 15. She will also resign from the board of Amazon.com Inc. on Feb. 16.

“We were excited to hear that Rosalind Brewer was tapped to lead Walgreens, her leadership and keen capabilities are exactly what the health care space needs and we look forward to the many innovative changes that are surely to come,” said Scott Cawood, CEO of WorldatWork. “At WorldatWork, we know great talent when we see it and Brewer has consistently delivered optimum results and an improved workplace every place she has been. We all will reap the benefits of her impact on an organization and industry ready for its next generation of leadership and purpose.”

Brewer joined the coffee chain in 2017 and worked to diversify the company’s leadership. Starbucks announced in 2020 that it would tie executive compensation to increasing minority representation in its workforce and mandated anti-bias training for company leaders.

Starbucks’ aim is for at least 30% of its U.S. corporate employees — and 40% of its U.S. retail and manufacturing employees — to be people of color by 2025. Starbucks said its metric included Black people, other people of color and indigenous people.

The company has roughly 200,000 U.S. employees and nearly 8,900 company-owned stores in the U.S.

“They aren’t slam dunks,” Brewer said of the targets in an October interview with The Wall Street Journal. “They are going to take some work.”

Pessina, an Italian billionaire, took over five years ago following the merger of Walgreens and European pharmacy chain Alliance Boots. Reduced store traffic amid the coronavirus pandemic is exacerbating Walgreens’ retail struggles, and the company’s efforts to transform itself into a provider of health care services have yet to take hold. The company also is expected to play a crucial role in administering the COVID-19 vaccine to the American public. Along with CVS, Walgreens worked with the federal government to administer doses at the nation’s long-term-care facilities.

There are four Black CEOs in the Fortune 500: Kenneth Frazier of pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co., Marvin Ellison of hardware store chain Lowe’s Cos., Roger Ferguson Jr. of TIAA, a financial services firm, and René Jones, who runs M&T Bank Corp. in New York.

The number of women running Fortune 500 companies hit an all-time high last year at 37 and more have since been appointed.
