Merchants realigned at Walgreens

November 14th, 2011

DEERFIELD, Ill. – Walgreen Co. has restructured its merchandising division, giving three general merchandise managers additional oversight.

Steve Broughton will be responsible for food, beverages and household consumables; Shannon Curtin (formerly Petree) will have oversight for beauty, personal care and seasonal products; and Robert Tompkins will handle health and wellness, front-end services and general ­merchandise.

Broughton had been responsible for consumables, Curtin for beauty and personal care, and Tompkins for health and ­wellness.

As part of the realignment, Frank Grilli will lead the expansion of Walgreens’ regional buying program as divisional vice president and general merchandise manager for regional procurement.

"We have piloted this program in three markets and will be expanding it over the coming months, providing additional buying support, economies of scale and governance to our local markets," said president of daily living products and solutions Joe Magnacca. "Frank will bring his deep store experience as well as buying expertise to this important new role in our ­organization."
