Nitin Sahney
Founder and CEO, PharmaCord LLC

It was a banner business year in 2021 for Nitin Sahney, who moved his latest company, fast-growing PharmaCord, into a new $50 million, 81,000-square-foot headquarters at America Place in River Ridge Commerce Center.

Sahney ascended the organizational chart of Cincinnati-based Omnicare Inc., then the nation’s largest institutional pharmacy, to become its CEO. There, he led a blockbuster sale of the company (for $12.7 billion), one of two exits that stand as hallmarks in his career along with RxCrossroads (sold for $240 million).

PharmaCord has added more than 250 people since March 2020, the onset of the global coronavirus pandemic, and now has more than 450 employees.

If all goes well for the company, it could employ as many as 950 by the end of 2023. Revenue has tripled over the last two years and EBITDA, a profitability measure, has grown by 400% for the same period.

He’s a past member of the UofL Board of Trustees.
