CVS/pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Caremark Corporation, today announced that Rob Price, CVS/pharmacy’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, has been named to The Aspen Institute's 2012 Class of Henry Crown Fellows.
The Henry Crown Fellowship is designed to engage the next generation of leaders in the challenge of community-spirited leadership.

Previous Henry Crown Fellows have included Deval Patrick, Governor, State of Massachusetts; Michael Powell, former FCC Chairman; and Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix.
“Rob represents the type of leader that we believe has the capacity to make a significant impact on our society,” said Eric L. Motley, Managing Director, Henry Crown Fellowship. “As you can imagine, we are all the more excited to welcome him into the Fellowship of 20 other like-minded individuals.”
“Rob’s appointment to the Henry Crown Fellowship for 2012 speaks to the quality of our leadership at CVS Caremark,” Larry Merlo, President and Chief Executive Officer of CVS Caremark. “We’re proud of Rob’s selection for this prestigious program, which is focused on community-spirited leadership.”

About The Henry Crown Fellowship Program
The program was established in 1997 to honor the life and career of Chicago industrialist Henry Crown (1896-1990) and was initially funded by the Henry and Gladys Crown Charitable Trust Fund. The Fellowship is the flagship program within the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN), now comprising over 1300 Fellows from 43 countries, all of whom are committed to applying their entrepreneurial talents to address the foremost challenges of their organizations, communities, and countries.
The Aspen Institute’s mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Aspen Institute does this primarily in four ways: seminars, young-leader fellowships around the globe, policy programs, and public conferences and events. The Institute is based in Washington, DC; Aspen, Colorado; and on the Wye River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It also has offices in New York City and an international network of partners.
