MIAMI – Navarro Discount Pharmacy has appointed Luis Mier as chief financial officer and promoted Manuel Leon to vice president of wholesale and over-the-counter programs.

The Hispanic-owned pharmacy chain, with 29 drug stores in the Miami area, said Friday that the executive moves expand its management team.

"With the addition of these executives to our management team, we continue to focus on the implementation of our three-year expansion strategy and the overall growth of the company," Navarro chief executive officer Juan Ortiz said in a statement. "Mier and Leon's expertise in retail, OTC, management and operations will assist us greatly in taking Navarro to the next level."

Mier is a seasoned accounting and finance executive with more than 21 years experience in the retail and food/beverage industries, according to Navarro. Before that, he was corporate controller at Donald J. Pliner, a luxury footwear company where he supervised the company's accounting, human resources, payroll, benefits administration, and accounts payable departments and led the implementation of numerous accounting software and retail management systems. He has held similar positions with retailers Floors Today, Farm Stores Grocery and Pan Am International. 

In his new role as vice president of wholesale and OTC programs, Leon is responsible for Navarro's wholesale division, which sells products to customers in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and is one of the company's fastest-growing businesses. Leon was promoted from the position of director of OTC Plans, where he managed the drug chain's OTC programs in partnership with their health care clients.  He has been with Navarro for more than three years.
