Sam Ewing President and Chief Brand Officer of Astrup Companies met with us this morning. He currently oversees the marketing and human resource departments. Sam started with the company by working at Sterling Main Street before moving over to the corporate office. His advice was to be agile and innovative, to take care of your people, and to work hard. Ellen Bang, Astrup Controller, also joined us. She worked in public accounting prior to joining Astrup. She mentioned that she loves working for a family owned business and her advice to students was to be ready to adapt. Ellen reminded them that the environment will always change and that this is a normal part of business that they should prepared to change with. Astrup was founded in 1952 and has been in the family for the generations. There have been many changes in pharmacies over the years, especially transitioning from private pharmacies to larger pharmacies, but Astrup is doing many things to keep their company thriving through the 15 stores. Students learned about the many areas of the business including long term care pharmacies, speciality pharmacies, Smart Fill, and the Astrup Foundation. It was a great visit and are so thankful for their support of the CEO Program! Pacelli Catholic SchoolsAustin Public Schools
