Walgreen CEO and President to retire after Alliance Boots deal

Walgreen President and CEO Greg Wasson is departing from the company after spending 34 years with the drug retailing chain. The announcement came yesterday and is a reversal to a plan circulated last August that would have placed Wasson at the helm of a new company formed after its’ acquisition of European heavyweight Alliance Boots. Brigid Sweeney covered the story for Crain’s Chicago and she joins us on the line to discuss the change at the helm of one of Chicago’s best known public companies.
