Steve is a leading global operations executive with expertise in all aspects of operations management, including strategy, FP&A, and large-scale business transformation project management, and he has already proven an effective and valuable member of the Fred’s Pharmacy team since his appointment a few months ago. Additionally, since joining Fred’s Pharmacy in July 2016, Kimberley has contributed her extensive retail experience and will continue to be a vital component to our consumables growth going forward.
