By Michael Johnsen - 01/23/2018
Walgreens Boots Alliance on Monday named Gulden Mesara-Dogan vice president communications USA.

“We are thrilled that Gulden is joining the Walgreens Boots Alliance communications team to lead many of our critical functions,” Chuck Greener, senior vice president for global communications and corporate affairs, Walgreens Boots Alliance, said. “Her experience and expertise across the spectrum of communications operations, especially in the health care industry, will help to take our organization and impact to an even higher level as Walgreens Boots Alliance begins its fourth year as a global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise.”

In her new role at Walgreens Boots Alliance, Mesara-Dogan will oversee a number of communications areas serving the enterprise and U.S. businesses and operations. These include the Walgreens communications division, Walgreens external communications and the Walgreens Boots Alliance internal communications and corporate events groups. She will report to Greener.

Mesara-Dogan will serve alongside Laura Vergani, vice president, international and divisional communications, who also will continue to report to Greener in her role overseeing international communications.

Mesara-Dogan was most recently vice president of global commercial and health communications at AbbVie. At AbbVie, she led communications and patient relations for all of AbbVie’s marketed products, pipeline assets and regional business priorities.

Prior to that Mesara-Dogan was 13 years at Pfizer, where she held positions in marketing, communications and public affairs, including as regional head of communications across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America and top emerging markets across the world.

Earlier in her career Gulden worked for Ketchum and Noonan/Russo Communications, both based in New York City.
