Pharmacy Quality Solutions CEO to retire
Pharmacy Quality Solutions announced that its chief executive officer, Jeff Newell, is retiring.
Newell will be leaving his position at the end of May in 2021 after a 40-year career in pharmacy.
"Pharmacy is in my blood," Newell said, noting that many of his family members are pharmacists. "It truly has been a pleasure to work side by side with my PQS team members, past and present, to build a business that supports our client's needs."
Before joining PQS, Newell served as an executive with Sears Holding, Millennium, Healthcentric Advisors and CVS Health, and began his career in family-owned and operated pharmacies in New York.
"The board has enjoyed working with a leader with such deep industry knowledge," said Tom Menighan, APhA CEO Emeritus and chair of the PQS Board of Directors. "He will be missed but he leaves behind a high-performing team. We wish him well in his next chapter."
Todd Sega, the PharmD, senior vice president, development and strategy will succeed Newell.
