DUBLIN, OH, August 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- HealthSpot is proud to announce that experienced business leader Boake Sells has been named Chairman of the Board. Formerly a member of the board and COO of Dayton Hudson and Chairman and CEO of Revco Drug Stores, Sells will help guide HealthSpot in its roll out to community pharmacies nationwide.
As chairman of the board, Sells will call upon his extensive experience as a senior retail executive and venture capital investor to support HealthSpot as the company extends into the retail channel. The company plans to roll out HealthSpot stations in community pharmacies across the US combining a comprehensive healthcare delivery platform with software in the station.
Sells began his retail career in 1969 joining Cole National Corporation, a diversified specialty retailer and rose to President, COO and board member. In 1983, he joined Dayton Hudson and was elected to the board and became COO of this $10 Billion retail company.
In 1987, Sells joined Revco Drug Stores as Chairman of the Board and CEO as that chain was failing from the effects of an ill-timed LBO. With over 2,000 stores and over $2 Billion in sales, Sells is credited with a very successful turnaround, resulting in the company's return to being publically held on the New York Stock Exchange in 1992.
"We are thrilled to have Mr. Sells on our team. His expertise in the retail and chain drug market is vital to HealthSpot's successful retail roll out," said Steve Cashman, CEO of HealthSpot. "HealthSpot's mission remains focused on increasing access to the right quality care in the right place at the right time, and Mr. Sells' guidance will help us continue to drive toward that mission."
Sells joins veteran business leaders and healthcare professionals Dr. Floyd D. Loop, John Spirk, Christi M. Pedra, Brent Stutz, Mervin Dunn and Steve Cashman on the board of directors to support the overall HealthSpot mission of changing healthcare.
