Phoenix sales director, Jeremy Meader, is to succeed John D’Arcy as managing director of Numark.
Meader joined Phoenix, the parent company of Numark, three years ago after a successful career with GSK and Alliance Healthcare.
The company says he brings a unique understanding of the Numark membership having headed up the Pharmacy Development team, during which time membership growth reached an all-time high in both existing and new channels.
John D’Arcy will remain as non-executive chairman where he will continue to be a vocal advocate for community pharmacy.
Steve Anderson, group managing director of Phoenix UK, commented: “We have a great team at Numark and we are going from strength to strength with ambitious growth plans over the coming years. Our sector is facing many challenges, but I know Jeremy and John will develop the solutions and support our customers need to succeed”.
