Geoff ackhurst

CEO

I have 25 years experience in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, I began my career as a sales representative at Zurich pharmaceuticals, where I won numerous awards for sales achievements.
I moved to Adcock Ingram where I was promoted to Regional Sales Manager after 2 years as a sales representative and headed the Uno division, responsible for the Eastern Cape business.
I was headhunted by Aspen, which was a brand-new company, to assist them in launching the new business and to take their product range to market. I consistently achieved targets and won top achiever awards on a regular basis among other accolades for high volume sales.
With my numerous contacts in the market place and the strong relationships I had developed with clients and key players, I was offered the opportunity to represent companies as an independent agent and this is when I ventured out on my own.
Synergy Pharmaceuticals was formed in 2009 and in the last 9 years we have represented international powerhouse brands among them the 3rd largest generics company in the world. The Eastern Cape is a market with unique challenges that we at Synergy are experienced at overcoming
