Retail pharmacy vet Keough joins LearnSomething
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Retail pharmacy vet Phil Keough has joined LearnSomething, a provider of e-learning products and services for food, drug and mass retailers.
Keough will serve as chief business development officer. In his new role, the former Rite Aid svp of pharmacy operations — who most recently ran his own pharmacy management consulting company, Keoco — will oversee developing and distributing innovative compliance, operational and sales performance products and services for retailers, including vehicles for educating retailers on new pharmacy and CPG products.
Keogh's immediate focus will be on finding new ways to bring cost-effective online compliance programs to retailers, as well as supporting LearnSomething's shopper marketing program, Shoppertunities, with insights on how consumer wellness education can be integrated into retail pharmacy settings.
"We at LearnSomething feel like we've found a perfect fit by bringing Phil on board," said Steve Roden, LearnSomething's CEO. "I believe that the skills and insights Phil acquired during his long and distinguished tenure in the pharmacy industry will help us to hone and drive our unique business model for creating successful partnerships among retailers and manufacturers that benefits both."
Keough spent six years at Rite Aid, from 2002 to 2008, and prior to that served as director of pharmacy operations for CVS. The Auburn alum began his career at Reliable Drug in 1990 before moving on to Revco in 1993, where he served in a variety of pharmacy and store operations positions until 1997, when that chain was acquired by CVS.
