Amazon plans to hire an executive to help the company break into the multibillion-dollar pharmacy market. Two people familiar with the company's plans said it is not a done deal that Amazon will move into this space, given the complex web of established players. But the company is bringing on a new general manager to lead the team and formulate a strategy, and is deep in discussions with industry experts. Amazon has also reportedly started to recruit more broadly from the pharmacy space. The company recently started selling medical supplies and equipment in the United States, and it is hiring for its "professional health care program" to ensure that it is meeting regulatory requirements. It also hired Mark Lyons 2 months ago from Premera Blue Cross. Lyons is reportedly tasked with building an internal PBM for Amazon employees, which might be later scaled out.
