Marvin is the CEO of iA, and is a pharmacist with 37 years of pharmacy and healthcare experience focusing on C-Suite leadership and operational expertise.

Prior to joining iA, Marvin was the co-founder and managing director of Capstone Consultants LLC, a pharmacy automation consulting company. Capstone Consultants worked to provide a wide range of pharmacy operations services from automation strategy and project planning to pharmacy workflow design and implementation/go-live.

As an entrepreneur, Marvin co-founded both PrairieStone Pharmacies, which eventually became a 33-store retail chain, and Low Cost Health Care, a multi-store retail and long-term care pharmacy business, which was eventually sold. As president and CEO of PrairieStone Pharmacies, he introduced DailyMed in 2002, an automated compliance packaging product, which improved patients’ medication adherence.

In 2012, Arcadia divested of DailyMed to Walgreens, and Marvin joined Walgreens as a corporate director overseeing DailyMed.

Earlier in his career, Marvin worked in Walgreens corporate offices and field operations, and also for Rite Aid as senior vice president, pharmacy operations, responsible for pharmacy operations and pharmacy technology company-wide.
