They are Adam Rodgers, chief growth officer; Ash Mehra, chief information officer; Daniel Bennett, chief marketing officer; Leanna Bautista, chief people officer; Andreas Schulmeyer, chief financial officer; and the promotion of Chris Pfeiffer to chief operating officer.

Daniel Bennett previously served as worldwide chief innovation officer for Grey Global Group, part of WPP, where he specialized in creating strategic partnerships and pursuing new digital opportunities for clients such as Volvo and P&G.

Leanna Bautista brings more than 15 years of experience at world-class institutions such as PepsiCo, Tory Burch, and Pfizer. She has a diverse skill set and is well versed in managing an organization undergoing rapid growth.

Andreas Schulmeyer, a 20-year industry veteran, has vast e-commerce and digital experience from his tenure as head of e-commerce international for L Brands and CFO of Walmart e-commerce. He returns to the C-suite after seven years at Faultline Solutions, the e-commerce consulting firm he founded in 2014.

Chris Pfeiffer has been integral to Pharmapacks’ growth over the past two years, and his promotion to chief operating officer will allow him to continue to build out warehouse and supply chain functions to best support the company’s expansion.
