President/CEOJan 2007 to Current Hutcheson Homecare Pharmacy － Lebanon, Ohio
Opened Hutcheson Homecare Pharmacy, a long term care pharmacy to serve local patients with developmental disabilities. With creating better purchasing and better reimbursement through 3rd party contracts than retail, Hutcheson surpassed the earnings of its sister company Bryan's Family Pharmacy within 3 years. Expanded sales to six counties with a full in-house delivery system increasing the monthly patient count from 250 to 1200. Using exceptional project management skills, created new revenue streams, by entering the arena of assisted living, mental health and drug/alcohol rehabilitation. Surpassed goals of battling the opiate epidemic by becoming the second largest supplier of Vivitrol in the US, servicing 4600 patients. Opened a second retail Pharmacy in 2015 inside a Mental Health and Recovery Center to expand services to the doctors and surrounding community. Since its inception, Hutcheson Homecare Pharmacy's annual revenue has grown to $37M per year.
President/CEOJan 2003 to Current Bryan's Family Pharmacy － Lebanon, Ohio
Created Bryan's Family Pharmacy after observing a decline in the personal pharmacy services provided by large national chains. Bringing back the personal service of the neighborhood pharmacy to cater to the residents of Lebanon, Bryan's quickly became the "Cheers" of pharmacy and ultimately, an iconic symbol of Lebanon. Built from the ground up, Bryan's Family Pharmacy was a product of blood, sweat & tears. When the doors opened in 2003, Bryan's Family Pharmacy saw steady financial growth through the years by implementing a multitude of patient focused programs, setting us apart from the big box stores. With the heavy competition of 9 chain pharmacies within a 4 mile radius, Bryan's was able to maintain a steady #2 behind the fuel point incentives of Kroger. With shrinking retail margins, diversification was critical to stay profitable. This was attained by opening a compound lab, supplying durable medical equipment for rent/sale, offering vaccination clinics and a variety of disease state educational classes. Diversifying in this way made Bryan's a destination pharmacy.
