OptimizeRx Corporation (OTCMKTS:OPRX) Files An 8-K Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Effective July 21, 2020, we have appointed Mr. Greg Wasson as member of our Board of Directors.

As president and CEO of Walgreens, Mr. Wasson led the company to record sales of $76.4 billion in 2014. He created significant shareholder value by completing game-changing mergers and acquisitions, leading complex organizational and structural change, assembling a diverse and high-performance senior leadership team, and establishing Walgreens as an industry leader. Mr. Wasson is largely credited for transforming the iconic 114-year-old domestic company into the first global pharmacy-led, health, well-being, and beauty enterprise via the successful merger with European-based Alliance Boots in 2015.

Prior to being appointed president and CEO of the combined companies, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Mr. Wasson had risen through the ranks through a number of positions of increasing responsibility and executive leadership, starting as a Walgreens pharmacist technician in 1981.

There has been no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Wasson and any other person to which he was selected as a director of our company.

We have not yet selected Mr. Wasson to participate in any of our committees, but we plan do so in the near future.

There are no transactions in which Mr. Wasson has an interest in our company requiring disclosure to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

As non-employee directors, Mr. Wasson will be entitled to participate in our Director Compensation Plan.
