Mr Meader joined the company three years ago, having previously worked with GSK and Alliance Healthcare.

John D’Arcy will remain a "strong ambassador" for Numark and a "vocal advocate for community pharmacy" as non-executive chairman, said the company.

A statement from Numark said: "Jeremy brings with him huge experience and knowledge of not only the sector, but a unique understanding of the Numark membership having headed up the Pharmacy Development team, during which time membership growth reached an all-time high in both existing and new channels."

Steve Anderson, group managing director at Phoenix UK, commented: “We have a great team at Numark and we are going from strength to strength with ambitious growth plans over the coming years. Our sector is facing many challenges, but I know Jeremy and John will develop the solutions and support our customers need to succeed”.
