Bio - Ed Webman
A third-generation pharmacist, Ed Webman brings broad experience and expertise to the Buy-Sell a Pharmacy team. Ed had his first taste of pharmacy life working in his family's business as a teenager and started his professional career as a pharmacist for a chain and later for an independent. He then joined QS/1 Data Systems where he was responsible for pharmacy computer system sales and installations. After nearly a decade, Ed left QS/1 to start his own pharmacy business, which he eventually sold to Fedco, a regional chain. He joined the company as senior vice president and director of pharmacy and led the acquisition and divesture program. After Fedco was sold in 2001, Ed started Central Florida Pharmacy/Advanced Medical, a specialty pharmacy and DME supplier. He grew the businesses from the ground up and sold them in 2007. In 2009 Ed founded the pharmacy lending group at Live Oak Bank, establishing the bank as the largest lender to independent pharmacies nationally. In five years, he led Live Oak to close over $500MM of pharmacy loans to more than 500 pharmacies in 46 states and 2 US territories.
