John D’Arcy will retire from his position as managing director of Numark at the end of January 2018, after 10 years’ service with the symbol group and 37 years within the industry.

Mr D’Arcy qualified as a pharmacist in 1980 and undertook a number of community pharmacy management positions before joining the National Pharmacy Association in 1990. John specialised in supporting community pharmacies with legal, ethical and NHS issues and in 1994 gained a Bachelor of Laws (LLB).  In 1996, John was appointed chief executive for the trade body.

After 17 years with the NPA, John joined Rowlands Pharmacy as commercial director and, after a brief interim spell at Numark in 2008, he was formally appointed Numark’s managing director in 2010.

Under Mr D’Arcy’s leadership, Numark’s membership has reached 3,400. He will remain as Numark chairman for at least two years, the company said.
