The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) recently appointed Edith Rosato, RPh, as its new CEO.

Rosato takes over the post from Judith Cahill, who has served as the head of AMCP since 1995 and recently announced her plans to retire. Rosato most recently served as president of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ (NACDS) Foundation and as senior vice president of pharmacy affairs at NACDS.

“I am very excited and honored to join AMCP, one of the nation’s leading organizations in pharmacy and managed care. I believe wholeheartedly in the Academy’s mission, and am looking forward to building on the great work that has been already done over the past 2 decades,” Rosato said.

Before Rosato’s 11 years at NACDS, she served as director of customer development for Healthcare Systems, national accounts manager for Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories, and corporate pharmaceutical buyer for CVS Caremark. “Edith’s extensive industry knowledge and excellent leadership experience make her an ideal choice for successfully guiding AMCP into the future and helping us continue to improve healthcare for all,” said David Clark, president of AMCP.

Clark also expressed gratitude for Cahill’s years of service to AMCP. “Judy has been instrumental in building the Academy from a small base of 500 members to the nearly 6,000-member organization it is today,” he said.
