Imprimis Pharmaceuticals Names Pharmacy Business Leader Randle House As Vice President Of Pharmacy Operations

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMMY), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary and novel sterile and topical drug formulations, today announced that Randle House has joined the company as Vice President of Pharmacy Operations. In this role, House will head the Company's distribution and operations team to make and distribute its patent-pending proprietary drug formulations and other novel pharmaceutical solutions.

In December of 2013, Imprimis announced its intention to pursue a compounding pharmacy strategy in accordance with the Drug Quality and Security Act, and earlier this month announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire Pharmacy Creations, a premier, state-of-the-art compounding pharmacy located in Randolph, New Jersey.

"We are pleased to welcome Randle House as a member of the Imprimis management team," said Imprimis CEO Mark L. Baum. "We believe that his deep experience establishing, growing and optimizing pharmacy operations will be a critical factor as we work to achieve our mission of making and distributing our proprietary formulations to patients and physicians across the United States. We believe our business model has the potential to advance access to personalized medicine and deliver innovative, near-term and affordable medical solutions."

House is a seasoned pharmacy industry business leader with both small and large company operational background including key roles at Rite Aid Corporation, BioScrip, Inc. and Eckerd Pharmacy. He brings a breadth of experience in compounding, specialty and retail pharmacy environments. Most recently, he was Vice President of Operations at Avella, Inc. where he oversaw compounding and specialty operations at sixteen locations across the country. Prior to Avella, in addition to managing and growing a $300 million annual revenue pharmacy business for BioScrip, Randle acted as Director of Pharmacy Acquisitions for Rite Aid Corporation after previously managing a $620 million annual revenue 250 unit pharmacy business. Randle began his career at Eckerd Pharmacy in 1999, eventually managing up to 49 pharmacies with annual sales of approximately $173 million before Eckerd was purchased by Rite Aid.

"It is inspiring to join such a visionary organization at this early stage and direct the strategic operational groundwork. My skills and experience are particularly well suited for the role I will play at Imprimis and I am excited to work together with the Imprimis team to build something that will positively impact our community of customers," said Randle House who earned his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Mississippi. "It is not every day that one has the opportunity to effect the delivery of truly personalized medicine and we are excited to use this business model to deliver high-quality, safe innovation to physicians and patients."
