Lorrie Carr

Chief Executive Officer

Lorrie’s vision for the company is to unlock the full potential of health for our patients and our client partners.  Avita was founded on the notion that everyone should have the care they need, delivered with the compassion they deserve. She recently led the integration of five companies into one Avita brand with a new unified vision and mission.  Under Lorrie’s leadership, the new Avita has become the leading independent HIV Pharmacy Services provider focused on Federal Grantees and underserved populations.

Before joining Avita in 2019, Lorrie was CEO for ExceleraRx where she reset the strategy and led the team in developing new products and services for members and pharmaceutical partners.  Prior to Excelera, Lorrie was the Divisional VP, Specialty Sales & Strategy for Walgreens.  While at Walgreens, Lorrie led the strategic development of the HIV and Onocology programs.  In addition, she redeployed the sales teams and grew Walgreens specialty business by double-digits.  The first half of Lorrie’s career was spent in the pharmaceutical industry with Schering-Plough and Millennium Pharmaceuticals leading Global Pricing & Market Access teams.

“I have spent my career focused on building and leading world class teams who are dedicated to ensuring that patients have access to critical health care services.  I am incredibly grateful to be leading an organization filled with people who share my passion for supporting patients.”

Lorrie received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Columbia College, and her MBA from UMASS Isenberg School of Management.
