Rite Aid has deepened its bench of health industry leaders with the appointment of two new executives: Roxanne Schwans has joined the company to lead market access and pharmacy purchasing, and Chris Bohrer has joined to build out Rite Aid’s health plan solutions business and strategic initiatives.

As svp/market access and pharmacy purchasing, Schwans is responsible for pharmacy procurement and overseeing the growth and success of Rite Aid’s managed care partnerships.

In addition, he will support the broader enterprise on key strategic initiatives. He comes to Rite Aid from McKinsey & Company, where he was an associate partner in its health care practice, working with leading health insurers across the country. Prior to McKinsey, Bohrer served in actuarial, benefit design, and business development roles with Hays Companies and Humana.
