The American Pharmacists Association swore in Scott Knoer, PharmD, as its 13th CEO during a virtual ceremony June 1. 

The association announced in February that Dr. Knoer would succeed Thomas Menighan, its CEO for 11 years.

"Being sworn in as the leader of this storied organization is the greatest honor of my life. Guiding our profession through a global pandemic is also the biggest challenge of my life," Dr. Knoer said. "This is a challenge that I wholeheartedly accept and in fact embrace."

Dr. Knoer was previously chief pharmacy officer for the Cleveland Clinic for nine years. 

"On my watch, APhA will lead and be proactive, with bold approaches, positioning pharmacists as recognized and valued patient care providers," Dr. Knoer said.
