In 1980, an entrepreneurial pharmacist named David P. Hamacher discovered the answer to how drugstores should merchandise health and beauty aids. His department-by-department program was the birth of drugstore category management as we know it today. Dave Hamacher founded and grew D.P. Hamacher & Associates for the next 20 years.
Built on reputation, driven by innovation
Dave Hamacher retired in 2000 and sold the company to a software solutions firm. Sensing a drift from their core mission, Dave’s original management team, led by Dawn Vogelsang, purchased the company in 2001 and named it Hamacher Resource Group to represent the growing spectrum of resources available under one roof. Today we remain much as we always have been: collaborative, passionate, resourceful, and thorough – and always in constant pursuit of the next big idea to reinvent retail consumer healthcare.
In 35 years, we’ve gone from being the “planogram company” to the “category management, business strategy, and marketing services company.” We look forward to our ongoing evolution and how we can continue to meet your ever-changing needs.
