Our Expert Speakers
Dan Benamoz, RPh
Founder and President, PDS
As a registered pharmacist, multiple store owner and successful entrepreneur, Dan Benamoz, has earned the distinction of being known as an independent pharmacy advocate, keynote speaker and retail pharmacy turnaround specialist. In 1998, Dan founded Pharmacy Development Services with the purpose of bridging the gap between what was taught in pharmacy school and what pharmacy owners need to know about running a business so it doesn’t run them. Over the years, PDS has evolved to become an innovation leader developing numerous cutting-edge programs and strategies that have led industry change with over 1,000 locations in its high performing network. Dan keeps his entrepreneurial skills sharp through the many independent pharmacies he currently owns.
