A passionate leader in the pharmaceutical and consumer products industry for over 25 years, Gary has built businesses from the ground up. He has acquired, built and sold profitable brands and platforms, as well held management positions in sales, marketing, on the executive team, and as President for small, mid and large market companies. These have included AC Nielsen, Schering Plough, Del Pharmaceuticals and most recently Hi Tech Pharmacal as Divisional President.
During his tenure with Hi Tech, Gary was responsible for starting up a new branded OTC division focusing on diabetic products that he formulated and marketed under the brand Health Care Products. Hi Tech Pharmacal and the Health Care Products division were sold in March of 2014 to Akorn Pharma Inc.
It was at this point that Gary began his true mission to leverage his significant experience with diabetes—both professionally and personally—to bring diabetes care to the next level. The result is Diabetes4Living and its first product, BetiVite. His vision is that BetiVite is a foundational strategy to achieve the healthiest lifestyle possible for people with diabetes. And for those people with diabetes and even the vast pre-diabetic population who do not focus on their condition, Gary feels that this product gives them an opportunity to do something, especially if they are already taking a multi-vitamin as half of the US population does.
