Watch Stefano Pessina Discuss the New WBA

Last week, executives from the newly-formed Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) rang the Opening Bell at the NASDAQ Stock Market. Action shot below.

So, it’s a good time to meet Stefano Pessina, the industry’s new billionaire global overlord. This week, Pessina was making the rounds at the JP Morgan healthcare conference. He's been with Jeff Berkowitz, who is on the short list of possible CEO candidates (I hear). Check out the video below.

For fun and/or jealousy, you can track Mr. Pessina's Real Time Net Worth at Forbes. This morning, it was $11.3 billion.

In this CNBC video clip, Mr. Pessina is joined by Jim Skinner, Executive Chairman of WBA. Draw your own conclusions about body language. Click here if you can’t see the video.

Ask not for whom the bell tolls...
