Greg Wasson founded Wasson Enterprise, a family-based investment firm focused on investing, partnerships and businesses that were created by WE Team members. Wasson Enterprise has made multiple angel investments across retail, health tech, and clean and efficient energy. Wasson Enterprise’s first partnership is with Innventure, where Greg is the Chairman. Innventure commercializes disruptive technology for multinational organizations.
As Walgreens CEO, Greg led this Fortune 35 company to record fiscal 2014 sales of $76.4 billion. He is credited with creating significant financial and shareholder value, initiating and completing game-changing mergers and acquisitions, leading complex organizational and structural change, assembling a diverse and high-performance senior leadership team, and establishing Walgreens position as an industry leader. Before retiring from Walgreens, Greg had transformed an iconic 114-year-old domestic company into the first global pharmacy-led, health, well-being, and beauty enterprise via the successful merger with European-based Alliance Boots to create Walgreens Boots Alliance.
Greg started his career as a pharmacy services intern in the Walgreens corporate offices—an opportunity that led to his being hired by Walgreens upon graduation. Greg then spent many years in store operations, leading and opening new markets around the country. Greg also had the opportunity to run Walgreens Health Services which gave him a keen insight to the health care services side of the Walgreens business. This role lead to COO of Walgreens. Greg was with Walgreens for 35 years. He received his BS in pharmacy in 1981 from Purdue University.
Greg is also on the Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) Board, the PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC) Board, and the Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) Board.
