Even though, as Simon Reynolds says, Pharmacists are scientists who are released into the retail world with no business training, he’s still managed to build a business that now groups together about one fifth of the pharmacies in Australia. Starting with his father’s two pharmacies in Western Australia, he’s spent the last 20 years building the extremely successful Pharmacy Alliance company, which is a member-based organization providing the benefits of scale to independent pharmacists. Flying by the seat of his pants and without a business plan, he says the secret to his success has been his ability to spot opportunities and then act on them.
