Albertsons Companies said that Tom Moriarty will join the company as executive VP and general counsel, effective June 5, 2023. He succeeds Juliette Pryor, who left Albertsons in April to pursue another career opportunity.
Moriarty brings more than 30 years of executive leadership experience to Albertsons, including senior positions across legal, corporate strategy, policy and operations. He joins the company from CVS Health, where he spent more than 10 years, most recently serving as executive VP, chief policy and external affairs officer, and general counsel.
While at CVS Health, Moriarty oversaw all legal and regulatory functions within the company, including its $78 billion acquisition of Aetna. His experience in that will come in handy at Albertsons, whose merger with Kroger Co. is contending with legal and regulatory issues.
Prior to CVS, Moriarty spend approximately 12 years at Medco Health Solutions, where he held various leadership roles in corporate strategy, legal affairs, global supply chain management and mergers and acquisitions. While at Medco Health, he played a key role in leading the merger with Express Scripts, the then-largest healthcare transaction on record.
“Tom is a proven leader whose broad background and deep understanding of corporate and legal strategy make him a welcome addition to our talented leadership team,” stated Albertsons Cos. CEO Vivek Sankaran. “His experience leading high-performing teams and successfully implementing important strategic initiatives at top companies will be invaluable as we continue to execute on our Customers for Life strategy.”
