H. D. Smith reorganizes national operations

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Pharmaceutical wholesaler H. D. Smith announced that amid the retirement of one of its executives, the company has reorganized its national operations to meet the regional needs of its customers.

H. D. Smith said that its national operations now will be organized into a West region, which includes California, Illinois, Kentucky and Texas divisions; and East region, which includes Florida, New England and New York Metro divisions. The East and West regions will be overseen by corporate VPs Christian Harrington and Tom Twitty. Both executives will report to H. D. Smith president and COO Chris Smith.

The announcement reflects the retirement of EVP Harvey Tanenbaum, who is leaving the company after 12 years of service. During his tenure, Tanenbaum was the founder of the company's New York Metro division.

“As H. D. Smith continues to grow, so too does our need for dedicated customer service oversight and operational excellence in every region we serve,” Smith said. “This reorganization enables continued growth and provides new services to our customers — while maintaining focused support for each customer individually. Christian Herrington and Tom Twitty, having come from senior leadership positions within H. D. Smith and having held national positions during their careers, truly understand and are dedicated to this mission.”
