Bartell Drugs brings on operations exec from Albertsons

By David Salazar - 01/31/2018
Bartell Drugs has brought on Adam Wampler as its new senior vice president of operations. Wampler joins the Seattle-based company from Albertsons, where he was senior vice president of operations for Northern California.

Wampler has experience of more than 30 years with Safeway, which Albertsons acquired in 2015. In his most recent position, he oversaw store conditions, diversity, profitability and employee development at more than 283 Safeway Albertsons banner stores in three states. His career also has included roles in marketing, execution, store design and store layout.

“Adam’s experience in grocery and retail are a great fit for Bartell Drugs,” Bartell Drugs CEO Kathi Lentzsch said. “His focus on delivering an exceptional store experience through employee development and seamless operations will expand upon our famous Red Vest service.”

Wampler is the second addition to Bartell’s C-suite this month. The family-owned chain in mid-January named Lentzsch the company’s fifth CEO in its 128-year history.
