Langowski takes on the new role of leading the firm’s healthcare segment as Walgreens aims to expand its role in healthcare. She succeeds John Driscoll, who will transition to a senior advisory role with the company.

She brings many years of experience with payers, providers, pharmacy and retail health services. She has served as CEO of Solera Health, a value-based technology business serving payers and employers, since 2020.

Before joining Solera, Langowski served as executive vice president and chief strategy and corporate development officer at CVS Health. Walgreens touted her key role in CVS’ acquisition of Aetna. Langowski has also held leadership roles in federal and state government.

Walgreens has also made two other key executive appointments.
