NACDS names Giancamilli to head board of directors


NEW YORK The National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ new chairman of the board has officially started work.

Andrew Giancamilli, chief executive officer of Katz Group North America and Snyder’s Drug Stores began his tenure Thursday, succeeding Warren Bryant. Giancamilli will continue as chairman of the board until April 2010. 

A pharmacist by training, Giancamilli began his career at Perry Drug Stores in 1975, becoming president and chief executive officer in 1993 and taking executive positions at Kmart between 1995 and 2001. He worked at Canadian Tire from 2001 until 2003, when he joined Katz Group. Katz Group is one of the largest integrated retail pharmacy networks in North America and includes Snyder’s Drug Stores in the Midwest and the Rexall chain in Canada. 

“I’m very proud to serve NACDS and the industry in this critical role and look forward to working with the board on progressive initiatives,” Giancamilli said in a statement. “Promoting and advocating on the value of pharmacy to primary care and prevention is essential to not only improving the overall health of patients but also in moving the industry forward.”
