Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Dr. Fennick is a recognized pharmacy business leader and specialty pharmacy executive with over 15 years of experience growing patient-focused pharmacy practices. In his most recent experience in the specialty pharmacy sector, he led the national growth of a local specialty pharmacy where his responsibilities were immense, including national licensure, wholesaler relations, technology-focused project implementations, accreditation approval and maintenance, manufacturer trade relations, PBM and payor contracting, his business goals of rapid and profitable growth were far overachieved.
With Palmetto Pharm, Dr. Fennick’s vision is to keep the same aggressive entrepreneurial mindset but to apply that to a pharmacist-owned, patient-focused pharmacy. “The goal is to give our partners the best experience with the singular focus being on improved health outcomes for our patients.”
Dr. Ryan Fennick received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from West Virginia University and his Master of Business Administration from the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
