AB Acquisition LLC Taps Salemi for Pharmacy
Feb 26th, 2013
Boise, ID – (February 25, 2013) – AB Acquisition LLC has named Daniel Salemi to the position of President of the Company’s Pharmacy division. In this new corporate role, Salemi will be responsible for continuing to grow sales and profits across the Pharmacy operations for AB Acquisition LLC, and will report to Justin Dye, incoming Chief Operating Officer of New Albertsons Inc., (NAI).
Salemi, most recently the Vice President of Pharmacy Services for SUPERVALU, has over thirty years of experience in retail pharmacy. A 1980 graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, Salemi started his career with Osco Drug in 1980 as a staff pharmacist and held positions of increasing responsibility in Osco’s pharmacy operation, ultimately being promoted to Vice President of Managed Care and Pharmacy Procurement with American Stores Company prior to the 1999 merger with Albertsons Inc. At Albertsons, he held the role of Vice President of Managed Care, and joined the Supervalu pharmacy team in 2006.
“Our pharmacy team has implemented a lot of innovative programs over the last six years,” said Dye. “We’ve reached further into patient care than most traditional grocery retailers by implementing an extensive diabetes care program that includes specialized training for pharmacists, and mobile health care screenings and immunizations, and we’ve also had success with our RxTra Savings prescription card. Our pharmacists have become a valuable link in health care for our patients, and we’re glad to have a leader of Dan’s caliber join our team.”
Salemi will relocate to the Chicagoland area upon the transaction close.
