CVS Health has made two additions to its executive team.

CVS Health has made two executive appointments.

CVS Health has named Amy Bricker as executive VP and chief product officer —consumer, a new role for the company. Also, David Joyner will rejoin the company as executive VP and president of pharmacy services.

With nearly 20 years of diverse health care experience, Bricker will join the company in February, serving on the company's executive leadership team and reporting to president and CEO Karen S. Lynch.  Since 2020, she has served as president of Express Scripts.

Prior to joining Express Scripts in 2010, Bricker held various leadership positions at Walgreens Health Services.

In her new role at CVS, Bricker will focus on consumer products and innovation, leading the development of new products that support the evolving health care needs of consumers in the community, the home and digitally.

“Every element of our strategy puts consumers first, with a particular focus on the products and services they use to stay well," said Lynch. "Amy's passion and proven leadership will be invaluable assets as we continue to deliver on that strategy."

Joyner — a former CVS Health executive whose most recent role with the company was executive VP sales and marketing, 2012 to 2020 — brings more than 34 years of health care and pharmacy benefit management experience to his new role. He will join CVS on January 30 and lead the pharmacy services segment, which provides solutions to employers, health plans, and government businesses and serves more than 110 million members through CVS Caremark, CVS Specialty and other areas. He will become a member of the company's executive leadership team.

Joyner replaces Dr. Alan Lotvin, who plans to retire in April. Dr. Lotvin has played a critical role in the growth and success of several CVS Health businesses over the course of his 10-year tenure.

"David and Amy are accomplished leaders with proven track records of anticipating and meeting customer and client needs," said CVS Health president and CEO Karen S. Lynch. "David has deep experience in pharmacy benefit management that will help us deliver on our growth strategy for the business. Amy's passion and proven leadership will be invaluable assets as we continue to deliver on that strategy."

"CVS Caremark is a pharmacy innovator, consistently delivering industry leading products and results for customers," said Joyner. "I look forward to working alongside a talented team dedicated to improving the health care experience."

"CVS Health has unmatched opportunities to enhance and launch consumer products that make care simpler and more affordable," said Bricker. "I'm incredibly excited to join the company at a pivotal time in health care."
