Tony Anderson will take up the role of Chief Executive Officer of Celesio UK on September 1 2018, the company has announced.

Mr Anderson will join the pharmacy and wholesaling group from the health and beauty retailer AS Watson. His appointment follows the resignation of managing director Cormac Tobin in November 2017.

The new CEO will bring skills and experience from his role as AS Watson’s CEO Asia and Eastern Europe with accountability for £3bn revenue and 3,300 stores including 1,500 pharmacies. Prior to this, Mr Anderson worked for Sainsbury’s where he led their petrol business and later their online businesses before relocating to Asia in 2005.

Brian Tyler, Chairman of the Management Board of McKesson Europe, the parent company of Celesio UK, AAH Pharmaceuticals and LLoydsPharmacy, said: “We are evolving into an agile business that can respond to changing customer behaviour, play a larger role in the health of our communities, take advantage of technological advancements and react to legislative changes.

“Toby is committed to navigating the current and future challenges that our company faces and helping us to truly transform healthcare in the UK.”
