Jennifer Yowler has been named president of PharMerica Corporation.

Yowler has served as PharMerica’s chief financial officer since 2019, playing a lead role in the development and execution of the financial and operational strategy of the company.

She takes over for Robert Dries, who is retiring. Kentucky-based PharMerica told Lousiville Business First that Dries is remaining onboard temporarily as an executive advisor to assist with a smooth transition.

The company quietly moved Yowler to the top of its leadership website and shared news of her promotion on LinkedIn about two weeks ago.

Yowler joined PharMerica following 20 years as a senior healthcare executive. She has  experience in finance and operations at multiple companies in the long-term care and healthcare industry, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Omnicare and Partners Pharmacy.

Her background includes work in corporate finance, operations, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic planning.

She holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration in accounting from Ohio University.

With more than 140 pharmacies and 6,000-plus employees, PharMerica is one of the nation’s largest providers of pharmacy solutions for long-term care, senior living, hospice, behavioral health and specialty settings.
