Walgreens promotes Lubin to divisional vp


DEERFIELD, Ill. Walgreens today promoted Steven Lubin to divisional vp and the new position of general manager of marketing for non-mainland operations. In his new role, Lubin will be responsible for the marketing needs of customers in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

As general manager of marketing for Puerto Rico, Lubin spent the past three years living on the island. He is relocating back to the company's Deerfield, Ill., headquarters for his new duties.

Steve was a huge asset in Puerto Rico as we worked to better meet the unique needs of our island customers, said Walgreens chairman and ceo Jeffrey Rein. He also was invaluable as we opened our first Hawaii store last year, quickly grasping what Hawaii customers want in a drugstore and working with a Walgreens team to buy from many local vendors. Steve's a big part of our early, strong success in Honolulu. 

Lubin joined the company in 1970 as a stock clerk in Chicago while attending college. He managed several Chicago-area stores before moving into Walgreens purchasing department in 1980. He was promoted to a divisional merchandise manager in 1988 and to general manager of marketing for Puerto Rico in 2004.
