(Reuters) - Shoppers Drug Mart Corp SC.TO, Canada’s biggest drugstore chain, said Domenic Pilla has been appointed its president and chief executive, effective November 1.

Shoppers Drug was without a permanent CEO since Jurgen Schreiber left in February.

Pilla was most recently president of McKesson Canada, the Canadian unit of pharmaceutical wholesaler McKesson Corp (MCK.N).

Shares of Ontario-based Shoppers Drug closed at C$40.14 on Monday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
