In this new role Kuznetsov will be responsible for the generic pharmaceutical category to improve profits by driving a consistent and comprehensive strategy. Adding to his current responsibilities with generic sourcing, he will assume responsibility for the commercialization of generics. This will allow Kuznetsov to continue to deliver incremental value and still lead H. D. Smith’s generic sourcing activities. In his expanded role, Kuznetsov will help develop programs and pricing initiatives that will optimize generics for H. D. Smith’s customers.
