Minter Dialogue with Norm de Greve

Norm de Greve is CMO of CVS Health. He’s also a member of the Board of Directors for the ANA and Mobile Marketing Association. CVS Health, which is  the Fortune #7 company and was voted one of the most innovative companies by FAST company in 2018, has undergone tremendous change. Norm has been at the heart of the change and innovation. In this conversation with Norm, we discuss CVS’ journey, its most recent merger announcement with Aetna ($69B), the key moments and challenges Norm and leadership faced in charting this new path, including the creation of the CVS Beauty Mark. A fascinating ride.

Referring to CVS Health’s move to make beauty more authentic, Norm highlights Nyong’o’s phrase:

“For my entire life, I’ve been sold the seduction of my inadequacy.” 

Actress Lupita Nyong’o
