CVS Health Promotes Company Veteran to EVP, COO
CVS Health has appointed veteran executive Jonathan C. Roberts to the new position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. As COO, Roberts will have responsibility for consolidating operational oversight across CVS Health's unique suite of assets in order to achieve maximum efficiency, optimize investment of key resources, and, most importantly, deliver differentiated products and services to help people on their path to better health.
Prior to this role, Roberts served as president of CVS Caremark — the company's pharmacy benefit management business. He will now oversee operations for CVS Caremark, which includes the fast-growing specialty pharmacy business, and CVS Pharmacy, which includes MinuteClinic and Omnicare. Roberts’ scope of responsibility will also include information technology and all pharmaceutical procurement functions for the company. CVS Health will begin an internal and external search for a new president of CVS Caremark.
"CVS Health has a clear strategy focused on delivering differentiated care for our patients and value for our clients and members,” said Roberts. “Fully integrating our operations is a key next step for the company as we continue to deliver value for all of our stakeholders and partners."
