Ruban Insurance Friend of Pharmacy Award: Darren Cormier

Darren Cormier grew up on a farm in rural Manitoba playing sports, going to school, working on the farm, and being with friends and family. After high school, Darren attended the University of Manitoba where he completed his Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Over the next 17 years Darren worked in the Aerospace and Banking sectors, returned to school to obtain his MBA, was married and has four children, and along with his wife started a strawberry farm.  

Darren joined Northway Pharmacy as the Chief Financial and Operations Officer in the fall of 2017. In his role, Darren and his team at the Northway head office, work closely with pharmacy team members on a wide variety of items ranging from Operations, IT, Marketing, Leadership Development, Human Resources, and Financial & Business metrics. Darren and his team strive to support the pharmacies in a manner that allows the pharmacists and pharmacy team members to focus on core pharmacy practice items such as striving for excellence in patient care and pharmacy practice. 

Continually driving to improve how we do things is a daily way of life at Northway Pharmacy and Darren is proud of what the team has accomplished thus far and is excited about what the future holds!
