In January, Foulkes became president of CVS’s $65.6 billion retail business. Overseeing more than 7,700 pharmacies serving more than 5 million people every day, Foulkes was a key architect of the company’s decision in February to become the first pharmacy chain to stop selling tobacco products. In September the company renamed itself CVS Health, in part to reflect the change in strategy.
