How does a 170 year old pharmaceutical company reinvent itself over and over again to remain relevant in our ever-changing world?


Find out today with Jeff Davis, president and CEO of Sheffield Pharmaceuticals, a manufacturer and supplier of store brand over-the-counter (OTC) creams, ointments, toothpastes, nasal products and first aid products that have been made in the USA since 1850.


Jeff talks to Ari about making the right investments and taking the risks. But, even more valuable, Jeff admits that not all risks panned out. Sometimes a wrong turn teaches a valuable lesson that you can learn and grow from.


Jeff and Ari discuss scaling the business through automation and how a little bit of good timing helped them make it through Covid.
