MIAMI — Navarro Discount Pharmacy has expanded its management team, bringing in Luis Mier as chief financial officer and promoting Manuel Leon to vice president of wholesale and over-the-counter programs.
“With the addition of these executives to our management team, we continue to focus on implementation of our three-year expansion strategy and the overall growth of the company,” chief executive officer Juan Ortiz says. “Mier and Leon’s expertise in retail, O-T-C, management and operations will assist us greatly in taking Navarro to the next level.”
Mier has spent the past two decades in a variety of accounting and finance roles. Before joining Navarro, he was corporate controller at the luxury footwear company Donald J. Pliner, where he oversaw several different departments and led the implementation of numerous accounting software and retail management systems.
Earlier in his career he held similar positions with retailers Floors Today, Farm Stores Corp. and Pan Am International LLC.
Leon, who was previously director of over-the-counter plans, will now oversee Navarro’s rapidly growing wholesale operation. The business unit sells a variety of items to customers in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Leon has worked for the 29-store chain for nearly four years.
