NORTHRIDGE Connie Barry, Pharmavite president and CEO since 2005, on Friday announced that she will be stepping down from her role at the company effective Jan. 31, 2010, due to personal health issues.
Barry is a 30-year Pharmavite veteran who led the company through its largest growth period. Under her leadership, Nature Made, Pharmavite’s flagship supplement brand, significantly grew market share, expanded distribution and maintained its position as the No. 1 selling brand in the food, drug, mass and club channels.
Pharmavite’s Board is expected to name a successor in the next few weeks. In the interim, the current executive team will continue to lead the company. Barry has agreed to continue in an advisory capacity as needed to support the organization.
