Mike Bloom is a seasoned retail executive with more than 30 years of retail experience, 20 of them with CVS/pharmacy. As the senior CVS/pharmacy executive with direct oversight for merchandising and supply chain activities, Bloom leads an integrated end-to-end network managing store layout as well as the selection, purchasing, inventory and supply of product throughout the company's retail locations as well as managing the company's visual merchandising and pricing departments. In addition to his current role, Bloom will now assume responsibility for advertising and marketing.

Scott Baker, whose tenure with CVS/pharmacy spans more than 25 years, has held a variety of important senior roles including SVP of Retail Operations and head of the company's East retail field operations. Baker, a pharmacist by training, will now assume responsibility for all of the company's retail field organizations and pharmacy operations.

"As the company's succession planning process moves forward and I have assumed more enterprise-wide responsibilities, we made the decision to delegate the day-to-day operations of our Retail business to two of our most senior retail executives," noted Merlo. "What has remained clear throughout our search for a new President of CVS/pharmacy is that we are very fortunate to have a strong, stable group of senior leaders supporting our business. This team of individuals has helped shape our direction and deliver industry-leading results and has consistently demonstrated the highest levels of leadership and teamwork. I expect this success to continue into the future as Mike and Scott lead the retail organization."

The company also announced that it has made the decision to resume its search for a new President of CVS/pharmacy. Merlo added, "I am confident we will find the right individual for this important role."
