Partner, Independent Rx
Tim graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a BS in Pharmacy in 1991. Tim has worked in his family pharmacy since he was 15 years old. He has been a stock boy, delivery driver, pharmacy technician, floating pharmacist, pharmacy manager, and pharmacy owner. He has experience working as an independent, and spent most of his college career working for Walgreens.
Shortly after graduation he came back to work at the family business making him a 3rd generation pharmacist and later a pharmacy owner. In 1997, he took over the family business, Clark’s Pharmacy, which at the time was a 3 store chain, as CEO and President. Upon taking over he grew the business, through acquisition and start-ups, to 10 retail sites. Then he strategically sold 7 of the stores and rebuilt the business to 15 retail locations plus long-term care and compounding pharmacies, through acquisition and opening stores from scratch. Through his career Tim has owned, purchased, and started over 30 stores. He understands the pressures of owning, buying, and selling. He has also helped start Independent Rx Consulting, and has helped over 100 individuals become owners like himself. Today, he owns 3 pharmacies.
