Eric Garner Named OSRX Chief Commercial Officer
Rapid climb up executive ranks lands Garner at helm of all sales and marketing efforts for ophthalmic compounder
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (May 7, 2021) – Since joining pharmaceutical startup OSRX® in March 2019 as director of marketing, Eric Garner has quickly ascended the corporate ladder. He was named vice president of marketing in January 2020 and was just promoted again, becoming chief commercial officer for OSRX. The newly formed position places Garner in charge of the marketing and sales departments for a burgeoning organization that compounds solutions for post-op cataract and refractive procedures, glaucoma management and myopia control.
“Eric’s strategic problem-solving skills are extraordinary,” says OSRX Founder and CEO Anthony Sampietro. “He’s always accountable – a tactical implementer who takes the initiative to identify opportunities that improve the organization. Most people sit back and wait to be told what to do. Eric comes to me with strategic plans and solutions and makes things happen.”
During his tenure at OSRX, Garner has led corporate branding efforts, helped introduce the OSRX compounding pharmacy and broaden its nationwide footprint, and implemented national public relations, marketing and digital ad campaigns. As chief commercial officer, Garner, 33, will be responsible for everything from sales strategy, sales force automation initiatives and customer service to national strategic marketing/communications plans and implementation.
“Eric’s ability to harness and maximize the opportunities afforded in the digital age is amazing,” says Sampietro. “This will help him blend all of our disparate sales and marketing responsibilities into one cohesive commercial strategy for our entire ophthalmology portfolio.
“Despite all the COVID challenges presented in 2020, OSRX exceeded annual revenue for the fourth consecutive year and we saw our first year of profitability. I’m confident our fortified commercial strategy will help us achieve top-line revenue for the foreseeable future. Eric certainly has all the tools to guide this commercial and product expansion into our next chapter of growth.”
