VALLEY FORGE, Pa. – AmerisourceBergen Corp. has promoted Barbara Brungess to vice president of corporate and investor relations.

"Barbara brings a deep and broad knowledge of the company to her new role," R. David Yost, AmerisourceBergen president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. "She joined AmerisourceBergen 10 years ago in the investor relations office and has steadily grown her responsibilities and leadership within that department."
Yost added, "I also want to thank Mike for his leadership and dedication to AmerisourceBergen during the 10 years he has been with the company. His integrity, knowledge and communication skills have served AmerisourceBergen and our shareholders extremely well."
