Pharmacy Franchise Owners Association Taps David Mayper as Executive Director
Date:9/7/2010

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The 356+ members of the Pharmacy Franchise Owners Association (PFOA) have appointed a new executive director to lead the member-owned trade association in its mission to preserve, protect and promote the interests of pharmacy franchise owners.  Industry veteran David Mayper will assume the role on September 13, bringing more than 25 years of pharmaceutical distribution and association experience.

Over the course of his career, Mayper has successfully grown or introduced important improvements to a wide variety of healthcare and pharmaceutical organizations. In particular, he has consulted with independent pharmacies; represented buying groups; has worked for major U.S. pharmaceutical distributors; and has owned a privately held regional healthcare distributor. Mayper has worked with AmerisourceBergen, H.D. Smith and most recently worked with American Associated Pharmacies Inc. (AAP) where he served on the management team that oversaw the merger of AAP and United Drugs.

"David is a seasoned executive with years of successful experience in guiding pharmacies through the process of negotiating agreements, earning favorable terms, and maintaining their competitiveness," said Todd Pendergraft, president, PFOA board of directors. "The decline of the franchise system has accelerated the need for more owner-focused, value-added programs to support our members."

PFOA currently offers vendor agreements and other services to support its members. The organization plans to expand its range of services to help independent pharmacists succeed in the face of growing reimbursement pressures and competition from major chain pharmacies. In addition, the PFOA supports a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of individual Medicine Shoppe and Medicap franchisees against Cardinal Health, the franchisor of those brands.

"The lawsuit represents the interests of several hundred independent pharmacy owners against the deceptive practices of Cardinal Health," explains Stan Winters, Medicine Shoppe franchisee in California, president of PFOA-MS and a lead plaintiff in the suit. "David's intimate knowledge of the pharmaceutical distribution industry helps strengthen our collective ability to fight for a fair resolution of this legal battle."

Mayper is a resident of Parkland, Florida. He earned his MBA from Florida International University, and his bachelor's degree from the University of Florida. He has served as an industry representative to the Broward County Pharmacy Association.
