Cincinnati-based health and wellness company Callitas Health Inc (CSE:LILY, OTCQB:MPHMF, OTCMKTS: MPHMF) announced Friday that former CEO Gary A Thompson died after a long battle with cancer.

Thompson, who died Tuesday, was a pharmaceutical industry veteran with a career spanning over three decades. He worked with pharmaceutical giants and startups. He served as vice president of sales for Cigna Healthcare (NYSE:CI) before taking over the reins of M Pharmaceutical Inc and later Callitas Health. Thompson was a graduate of Northern Kentucky University, with a BS in Kinesiology.

Callitas Health CEO James Thompson, took over the mantle from his uncle, Gary, earlier this year.

“Gary was a larger-than-life figure who brought his remarkable passion, experience and energy to Callitas Health and he will be greatly missed,” said Callitas Board member William Rodgers.

Callitas Health, which is now spearheaded by the second generation of Thompsons, is a well-diversified company. It has a nimble strategy focused on getting quick revenues from mass-appeal over-the-counter products and a more long-term blockbuster pipeline. It is active across five silos: OTC sexual health & wellness, prescriptions for female sexual health, weight management, cannabis delivery technologies and orphan drugs.
