Peace Corps Volunteer, Arthur Murray dance instructor and accidental advocate, Randy Lewis served as Walgreens’ chief supply chain officer for sixteen years as the chain grew from 1,500 to 8,000.
He pioneered a disability employment model in its distribution centers that resulted in ten percent of its entire workforce consisting of people with disabilities (1,000+ PWDs) who are held to the same performance standards, are paid the same wages and work side-by-side with non-disabled workers. It began with the launch of a distribution center in 2007 which became the world’s first-ever large-scale deployment of people with disabilities (40% of the workforce) in a mission critical site. The facility remains the most productive in the company’s 120-year history. From there the model has spread to its other distribution centers and to other companies in the U.S. and abroad including companies such as UPS, Toyota, Procter & Gamble, Marks & Spencer (UK), and Natura (Brazil).
His book, "No Greatness Without Goodness," was released in April 2014 and was named by Fast Company’s 10 New Books You Need To Read This Year. The book recounts the story of how the initiative came about and what led to its success. He remains active in promoting disability employment around the world and advising companies and communities in their efforts.

Our event in early January with Randy Lewis went extremely well. Randy was an excellent presenter and was well received by our January Series audience of over 4,000 viewers and listeners. Randy also graciously spent time with a class of students and our luncheon guests as well. It was a great day. The team at AAE was very helpful.

Working with both Jasmine and Debbie was a pleasure. They fulfilled all my needs, answered questions in a timely manner and proved to be good partners with American Water to ensure that our experience with Randy Lewis was a good one. And it's nice to put the faces with the names.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
