Walgreen Co.’s head beauty merchant, Kathy Steirly, has left the drugstore chain, as the retailer attempts to retool and rejuvenate its image within the beauty industry.
Steirly, along with William Hubbs and Arnold Silver — both who had careers spanning more than two decades — left their vice president posts at Walgreens Wednesday morning. Steirly, divisional vice president and general merchandise manager of Walgreens Beauty, was the well-respected face of the company to the mass market beauty industry. Their departures come on the heels of the 6,600-unit drugstore chain’s declaration it intends to remake its image with a new store prototype designed to emphasize skin care and cosmetics.
