Promotion lifts former director of business development to top post within the franchise division

Benzer Pharmacy is proud to announce the internal promotion of Vinesh Darji, a longstanding and highly valued member of the Benzer Pharmacy Franchise Division, to the position of President of Franchise. The decision comes as a reward of sorts as Vinesh moves up the leadership chain, and stands as an impressive testament to the impact he’s made on the business development side.

As Benzer Pharmacy President Alpesh Patel attests, Vinesh's remarkable commitment to guiding and supporting the growth of independent pharmacists through the Benzer model was reason enough to earn him strong consideration for the top post. Yet, it was his exceptional work ethic that “sealed the deal.”

“In Vinesh’s more than 25 years of experience as pharmacy leader, he has consistently displayed an exceptional talent for building successful storefronts,” Patel said. “An early adopter of the franchise model himself, he knows what independents face because he was one of them, and he knows what’s expected from the corporate retail angle because he’s been there, and done that, as well.”

According to Mr. Patel, Vinesh is a strong believer in improving access to quality healthcare services. He grew up in England where he earned his pharmacy degree from De Montfort University in Leicester; subsequently, managing a high-achieving store in the heart of London’s famed West End—one of the busiest and well-traveled markets in the country. In 1996, he would emigrate to the U.S. and begin his career as a registered pharmacist in Florida.

“Even early on, Vinesh excelled in the fast-paced pharmacy business, learning the pros and cons of managing in the retail setting for large corporations before going out on his own as an independent pharmacy owner,” Alpesh explained. “In his first year, he received “Rookie-of-the-Year” recognition from the parent company, dramatically increasing sales in the process.”

Though Vinesh has been a key member of the Benzer Pharmacy Franchise Division since day one, it’s likely his best days are yet to come.

“Benzer Pharmacy Franchise has definitely gotten better with Vinesh Darji as President. We have every expectation that he’ll exceed our expectations,” Patel predicted.
