Walgreens is welcoming a new executive. Min Cho is joining the company as chief format concepts and design officer at the end of August.
Cho will report to Tracey Brown.
"In this newly created role and function, Min will focus on new innovative store design and architecture which embraces creativity and functionality to put our customers, patients and team members at the center of everything we do," Walgreens said.
The retailer also noted that Cho will be a key player in developing "how to bring our brand and values to life in our physical store spaces."
Cho has extensive experience in architecture and design and has spent most of his career working on iconic brands, such as Nordstrom and Starbucks. He was most recently vice president of global concepts in the growth and concepts organization at Starbucks, where he led the innovation for brand experience strategy for customers and employees, store design and construction, among other responsibilities to support the existing store portfolio and new stores.
"Our nearly 9,000 stores are a valuable asset and we must deliver a physical environment that leverages our stores and other locations as vehicles to communicate our company’s culture of caring to customers, patients and team members," Walgreens said.
