NEW YORK — Steve Lubin, 62, is stepping down from his post as divisional vice president and general manager of marketing for non-mainland operations at Walgreen Co. Lubin, who helped burnish the drug chain’s beauty reputation, has been with Walgreens for 43 years — starting as a stockman.
A few eyebrows were raised in the late Eighties when Lubin moved from toys to beauty — two very different categories. But he was a quick study — becoming one of the most respected beauty merchants in the industry while spearheading some of Walgreens’ biggest growth in the category.
