International Veterinary Sciences (IVS), a developer and manufacturer of pet care products that promote pet health and wellness, has appointed Arthur Bedrosian as chief executive officer and partner. Bedrosian comes to IVS after running several successful businesses over the past 30 years.
Most recently, Bedrosian served as CEO of publicly traded Lannett Company, a Generic Pharmaceutical company, where he led significant business growth on behalf of Lannett Company, Inc. from $10 million in fiscal 2000 to $700 million by fiscal 2018 and was named The Fastest Growing Company in the U.S. by Fortune Magazine. Complementing Lannett’s organic growth with several strategic acquisitions, Bedrosian expanded Lannett’s global reach and helped secure over 50 FDA abbreviated and one New drug Approval during his tenure. Included in his background was his experience in supplying veterinary prescription drugs to the veterinary market.
In his new role as CEO of IVS, Bedrosian will be focused on growing the IVS business both domestically and internationally. He will continue to build the OTC Pet Supplement brand and lead efforts to create a new line of veterinary pharmaceutical products, while leveraging his extensive experience in manufacturing, licensing and FDA compliance. Several new products are currently being developed with anticipated release dates in Q3 2018.
