Randy LewisToday on The ProGuide, we interview Randy Lewis.  He’s the former Vice President of Walgreens, Peace Corps volunteer, Fortune 50 executive and accidental advocate who led Walgreens’ logistics division for sixteen years as the chain grew from 1,500 to 8,000 stores. Randy introduced an inclusive model in Walgreens distribution centers that resulted in ten percent of its workforce consisting of people with disabilities who are held to the same standards as those without disabilities.
