Introducing: Pactt's 2018 work of heart award winner
Randy Lewis was a senior vice president at Walgreens for seventeen years until his retirement in 2013. During his tenure as head of supply chain and logistics, Walgreens expanded from 1,600 to over 8,000 stores. While in that position, he created a disability employment model to integrate people with disabilities as equals into its workforce. This resulted in ten percent of Walgreens’ workforce consisting of people with disabilities.
Randy is also the author of No Greatness Without Goodness: How a Father's Love Changed a Company and Sparked a Movement. His son Austin has autism and continues to be an inspiration and teacher for Randy. He believes that people with disabilities are “us” and any differences are minor compared to how we are alike. Mr. Lewis has received numerous awards for his volunteer work and advocacy. His compassionate view towards individuals with a disability and their potential for a rich, meaningful life echoes the work we do at PACTT in providing greater access and choice for people with autism.
PACTT proudly honors Randy Lewis for his advocacy on behalf of people
with disabilities. His passionate belief in the dignity of every human being
has compelled him to be a leader in the disability employment movement.
