In 1969, Goldstein’s drug store chain, CVS, was acquired by Melville Corporation and soon became the conglomerate’s dominant retail establishment. Goldstein took the reins of Melville in 1987 and began a total restructuring program transforming the company from a loose-knit group of retail establishments into an industry-focused healthcare company under the CVS name. His restructuring gamble paid off – building the largest drug retail chain in the United States generating over $15 billion in revenues.
