Pharmacy Quality Solutions has a new leader. Todd Sega has been named CEO of the pharmacy performance management service provider, succeeding Jeff Newell, who retired this month.

Sega has been with PQS since 2014 and most recently has served as senior vice president of development and strategy. Prior to PQS, Sega held roles with the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy and Walmart pharmacy. He received his Doctor of Pharmacy from Ohio Northern University.

“On behalf of the board of directors, we are pleased to select Dr. Sega as our next CEO,” said Tom Menighan, board chairperson. “Todd has deep expertise in quality measurement and an immense knowledge of our business. He is a respected leader who delivers strong results with his passion for expanding pharmacy’s role in improving patient outcomes. We look forward to working with Todd as our next CEO.”

Sega, who is a pharmacist, has focused his career to broaden the pharmacist-patient relationship and the pharmacist’s ability to support positive health outcomes. As senior vice president of development and strategy and former vice president of client services, Sega played an integral role in the creation of value-based reimbursement opportunities for pharmacies.

I can look forward to retirement knowing that I am leaving the company in Todd’s leadership.”

PQS has incredibly talented people with a collective drive to improve healthcare through measurement. I know that together, we will create new growth opportunities for the Company by continuing to listen and partner with our customers and maintain PQS as one of the best places to work for our people.”
