Rite Aid experienced a leadership shakeup as the pharmacy chain on Monday announced CEO Heyward Donigan’s exit and the appointment of an interim chief executive.
In a press release, the company revealed it had picked Elizabeth "Busy" Burr to replace Donigan on an interim basis, with her tenure starting effective immediately. Rite Aid has started looking for someone to take over as CEO permanently, hiring a "leading executive search firm" as part of those efforts, it also said.
