Discount Drug Stores has appointed Adam Goss as National Manager for Strategic Business in preparation for the retirement of long-serving National Franchise Sales Manager Reginald Bright in August, this year.
Bringing a wealth of knowledge with him to the role, Goss previously worked as Discount Drug Stores’ National Merchandise Manager and has almost 25 years experience in the pharmacy industry.
He says it’s an honour to be appointed to the role and to build on the significant work of his predecessor.
“For the past decade, Discount Drug Stores has grown exponentially with Reg as National Franchise Sales Manager,” he says.
“As we have in the past decade, we will continue to build our network and help our franchisees to grow Discount Drug Stores to become one of the most dominant pharmacy brands in Australia.
“I know everyone who has ever worked with Reg and Discount Drug Stores over the past decade will join me in wishing him all the best for his retirement and to thank him for his great work in getting the business to this point.”
Bright has worked in the Australian pharmacy industry for more than 30 years.
“I have worked closely with Adam, building Discount Drug Stores for many years and am confident Discount Drug Stores is in good hands with Adam redefining my role at the company,” says Bright.
“His strategic know-how and passion coupled with a detailed knowledge of Discount Drug Stores will prove vital and I look forward to seeing Discount Drug Stores continue to flourish.
“For over 10 years, we have been the fastest growing pharmacy group in Australia by a long way. DDS is a company that, without a doubt, increased the pharmacist’s turnover quite quickly because of the discount offer at an acceptable gross profit.
“It’s given me a lot of satisfaction being in a pharmacy franchise brand that’s able to have an impact on the pharmacy business and that’s why I stayed with the business for such a long time.
Goss commenced his role as National Manager for Strategic Business in 2014 in preparation for Reg’s retirement in August, 2015.
Both Adam and Reg will represent Discount Drug Stores at the 2015 Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference at the Gold Coast from March 12-15. They will be located at stands 196 and 224.
