GM hires CVS marketer Norm de Greve as CMO

Two years ago, CVS hired Michelle Peluso from IBM as chief customer officer, overseeing marketing.

In its announcement, GM praised de Greve for transforming CVS “from America’s corner drug store to the largest consumer health care company in the country, moving it to sixth place on the Fortune 500.”
