Numark managing director to step down

18 Jul 2017

Numark’s managing director is to retire from his post early next year, after a decade with the company.

John D’Arcy, who has 37 years’ experience in pharmacy, will step down at the end of January 2018, Numark announced yesterday (17 July).

Although ‘stepping out of the limelight’ in standing down as managing director, he will remain with Numark as its chair for at least two years to oversee its ‘ongoing progression’.

Numark said: ‘John has been hugely influential in shaping the business during his tenure, developing depth and breadth in the company’s product and service portfolio to help support members through some challenging times and momentous industry change

‘John has also had a prolific public presence. He has relentlessly championed the cause for community pharmacy – particularly independent pharmacy – and been vocal in promoting the sector and fighting its corner during his many years of service.

‘His passion, commitment and insight for pharmacy are enduring.’
