UrgentRx Fast Powders

Your heart muscle needs oxygen to survive. A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart is severely reduced or completely blocked off, denying the heart of oxygen. Often times, this blockage is caused by blood clots in the coronary arteries. Aspirin helps prevent clots. Taking Aspirin at the first sign of a heart attack as directed by a doctor and for 30 days thereafter can actually reduce the risk of death by up to 23%. Every second counts.

The UrgentRx Relief Team

Bios are usually boring to read. But take a look, and you’ll see that everyone on the UrgentRx management team has one thing in common. They know what it’s like to stick their neck out. Put their instincts and experience into an idea. And bring something new and different to the consumer market.

Jordan Eisenberg, Founder and CEO

If you want to understand UrgentRx Fast Powders, look no further than the fast-paced and effective management style of the founder.

Jordan is not an if kind of guy. He’s all when. And usually when means right now. He never shies away from a complex problem. With a true entrepreneur’s mentality, he asks “what if?” and refuses to work within the parameters of the status quo. Before founding UrgentRx, he started and sold two other successful companies (in addition to licensing a life-saving medical device invention) that have been touted in media such as The New York Times and CNN. Jordan’s tireless work ethic and drive for success have enabled him to create trust with investors, raise capital in an “interesting” economy, create a never-before-seen product line, and land that product line in major retail chains across the country. All in record time.

Kimber Ward, Vice President of Marketing

Our brand is more than a name, logo, or tagline. It’s a promise we deliver every chance we get.

Kimber will tell you a brilliant product is only the beginning of a marketing story. As an experienced creator of brands, her greatest strength is understanding the consumer mindset and using it to build awareness, consideration, and brand evangelism. As Vice President of Marketing at UrgentRx, she brings more than 20 years of consumer marketing and branding experience to the organization. She has worked with Keebler, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi, as well as private-equity-backed start-ups. As the marketing lead at Naked Juice, Kimber was responsible for the rebranding/marketing efforts that helped lead to the eventual sale to PepsiCo.

Tony West, Vice President of Sales

A great idea is worth nothing until you convince someone else of its value.

Tony brings 20+ years of consumer-packaged-goods sales experience across all major retail channels, including food, drug, and mass. He has been a senior-level sales executive at US Nutrition, a $3.2 billion manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of top-selling brands, including Nature’s Bounty, Osteo-BiFlex, Sundown, and Pure Protein. As a top sales executive at Schiff Nutrition, a leading manufacturer of premium vitamins and supplements, he helped grow the business to almost $300 million. He was also responsible for developing and executing the national sales plan that included the launch of Schiff Mega Red, which became the #1 selling brand in its category.

Meera Dhingra, Vice President of Finance

The consumer-packaged-goods arena takes a keen eye for statistics, a mind for finance and gut instinct for brands. Meera has all three.

Before joining UrgentRx, Meera spent ten years in various strategy and finance roles. She spent two years as independent consultant for companies, bankers, and funds in the consumer products space and spent eight years on Wall Street as a consumer products investment banker and a buy-side hedge fund investor. She also worked in the UBS Consumer Products and Retail Group, covering clients including Pepsi, Avon, Campbell Soup Company, and Diageo.

Aaron Pattillo, Vice President of Operations

Someone once said, 'to achieve great things, two elements are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.’ As VP of Ops, Aaron always has a plan, and he thrives in situations where "not quite enough time" is par for the course.

Aaron Pattillo is the Vice President of Operations at UrgentRx.  He brings 10+ years of operations and business development experience in bio-pharma and consumer products sectors. Most recently, he co-founded Khunu, a specialty apparel brand of knitwear and built the company's international supply chain. Prior to that he spent four years in management roles with the William J. Clinton Foundation, spearheading efforts to grow the organizations global operations and broker deals with pharmaceutical companies to expand access to HIV and malaria medicines.  While there, he helped expand the reach of the organization from five to 50+ countries and implement 40+ agreements with a dozen manufacturers, ultimately benefiting over 1.5 million patients around the world. Prior to that that, Aaron served as the manager of business development for Xcyte Therapies, a venture-backed biotechnology company and as an associate at Burrill & Company, a life-sciences venture-capital firm.   Aaron holds a Bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from Colgate University and a Master’s degree from the Kellogg Center for Health Sciences at Northwestern University.

It's About Faster Treatment. It's About Faster Results. And You Know What?...It's About Time.

Growing up, UrgentRx Founder Jordan Eisenberg’s dad always carried aspirin tablets in his wallet as a first-aid treatment for heart attacks. This didn’t seem odd to Jordan. He grew up with severe allergies, and like father like son, he carried an antihistamine in a plastic bag with him at all times.

Until he was old enough to think of something better.

UrgentRx Fast Powders

Jordan imagined credit card-sized packets of powdered medications. They’d be easy to carry, handy in unexpected situations, and easy to take. Without needing to find or ask for water.

That idea became a reality when Jordan founded UrgentRx and launched his first fast powders product—Critical Care Aspirin to Go.

Within days of being on the market, UrgentRx Critical Aspirin to Go was recognized for saving the life of a heart attack victim on the slopes at Vail Ski Resort. Today, UrgentRx products are carried by the ski patrols of Vail, Aspen, and Keystone, as well as by dozens of EMT units across the country, and on every American Airlines flight.

UrgentRx has evolved from emergency treatment with Critical Care Aspirin to quick and convenient ways to treat the most common everyday ailments. In addition to life-saving aspirin, our retail partners across the U.S. are now stocking their shelves with an entire portfolio of UrgentRx Fast Powders that provide right-now relief for headaches, heartburn, upset stomachs, aches and pains, and allergies. All come in convenient credit card-sized packets, are flavored, and can be taken without water.

It is our goal to continue developing breakthrough over-the-counter medications that provide fast and effective relief, whenever and wherever it’s needed.

UrgentRx Board of Advisors

It's ironic that board meetings are chronicled as “minutes.” For us, it's not about the minutes or even the hours. It's about lifetimes of experience from an eclectic and exciting team of doers. Our board provides sage advice, daring initiative, thoughtful analysis, and rebellious disdain for anything status quo.

Keith Belling

Keith said if you’re going to be a successful entrepreneur, you better love what you create. Good thing Keith loves chips.

Keith was Co-founder and CEO of popchips®, the innovative popped snack company founded in 2007. As CEO, Keith led popchips to nearly $100 million in revenues in just over 6 years. Built around a healthier tasty profile and fun attitude, the popchips brand won the hearts of snackers while continually winning industry awards and acclaim, including being named “One of America’s Hottest Brands” by Advertising Age. His other ventures range from developing restaurants/retail concepts and internet companies to providing strategic counsel to various high-profile corporations. Keith currently serves as chairman of popchips, while acting as a board member and/or advisor to a handful of select companies.

Douglas Bierer, Ph.D.

UrgentRx is about improving medicines—and people’s lives. That’s fun, but it’s also serious business.

Dr. Bierer is president of Douglas Bierer Consulting, LLC, a firm focused on regulatory affairs and product development issues for non-prescription drugs and cosmetic products. Prior to consulting, Dr. Bierer served as director of Global Regulatory Affairs and Toxicology at P&G. He has more than 25 years of experience in FDA regulatory affairs and compliance, toxicology, and clinical development.

Kim Feil

UrgentRx sought out Kim for her marketing track record, her deep understanding of pharmacy operations, and her brilliance as a transformation catalyst.

As the former CMO of Walgreens, Kim’s “there’s a way” platform repositioned the company to become a leading community in health destination that delivered new retail, pharmacy, health, and multicultural growth programs. She has been named a “woman to watch” by Ad Age, Crain’s Chicago Business, and Consumer Goods & Technology; dubbed a “futurist” by Fortune Magazine in its 2011 nomination to its “executive dream team”; and recognized by Advertising Women of New York in 2010 for “changing the game.” Kim is also the chair of the American Heart Association’s Chicago Go Red for Women campaign.

Aaron Lamstein

We think it’s important to look at past successes. But as entrepreneurs, we know no one can drive success by looking in the rear-view mirror.

We seek Aaron’s advice because he co-founded Worldwise and grew the company from a concept to one of the leading suppliers of environmentally responsible pet products, selling over 100,000 products a day through 30,000 retail stores via most major retail channels. Aaron served as CEO until 2008, when he transitioned to a strategic advisory role as executive chairman. Worldwise was sold in 2011, and Aaron remains an active board member.

Dr. Jack Lewin, M.D.

We all want a brilliant, caring, and experienced doctor on our side. Our organization has a great one.

Dr. Lewin is the former CEO of the American College of Cardiology. He was responsible for all aspects of the 36,000-member organization and oversaw its $90 million annual budget. He has also been CEO of the California Medical Association, director of health for the state of Hawaii, and a primary-care practitioner. He was an advisor on health policy to President Clinton and has been honored with many awards, including the Health Leader of the Year Award from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Commissioned Officers’ Association, and the Nathan Davis Award from the American Medical Association.

Thomas Morse

When it comes to medicine, we think differently. In fact there’s nothing like us on the shelf. Thomas gets that.

He co-founded Living Essentials, the makers of 5-Hour Energy and Chaser Freedom from Hangovers. As president, Thomas conceived both items and developed national and international distribution of these products through food, drug, mass, convenience and specialty retailers. He developed the core management team of Living Essentials, including roles across sales, marketing, production, and logistics. He has continued to serve as an adviser and consultant to several life sciences and related investment companies, including health and nutrition products, medical devices, and quality-assurance services.

We’re out to improve medicine

And more importantly, to improve people’s lives

We’ve put a rover on Mars. And yet to treat most daily discomforts we still need water? That’s plain silly. UrgentRx is about change for the better. So look for us at events near you, passing out samples, making news, supporting good causes, and making life better — one credit card-sized packet at a time.

Why Fast Powders?

Whenever and wherever a symptom strikes, UrgentRx Fast Powders deliver the right-now relief to put you back in control.

  • Carry anywhere.
  • Treat immediately without water.
  • Fast-dissolving powders taste good.

UrgentRx Executive Board

We should probably think of a better name than “Executive Board.” Because more often than not, a board is usually just what it sounds like… bored. For our team, nothing could be further from the truth.

Whatever we eventually call them, it can’t be respectful enough. Our executive (fill in the blank) is a well-respected and experienced team of out-of the-box, powerful thinkers. They have not only committed themselves personally to helping us create a great product. They’ve been nothing short of Herculean with the hard work of pushing it forward. Maybe Executive Super Heroes, or Executive Jedi’s. Yeah, that’s starting to feel more like it.

Jordan Eisenberg

Early on, Eisenberg learned that he was much better suited for creating a new kind of ladder than climbing the corporate one. We agree.

Jordan Eisenberg, Founder and CEO of UrgentRx, is an entrepreneur to the core. Jordan gave up the “climb the corporate ladder” mindset more than a decade ago while seeking out opportunities to create and build companies where he could personally make a difference. He started by inventing and licensing a life-saving medical device to a major medical manufacturer; and then went on to start and sell two other companies, which have been touted in media such as The New York Times and on CNN. One of those companies was a top iPhone app that gained over 100k downloads before the company sold in 2010. Eisenberg then went on to start his third company, UrgentRx®, a line of fast-acting powdered medications that has been credited with saving the lives of more than 14 heart attack victims. Jordan’s innovative confidence comes in part from working with serial entrepreneur Maurice Kanbar, the Founder of Skyy Vodka, the Inventor of D-Fuzz-It, and holder of more than 35 patents. While working with Maurice, Jordan was instrumental in the production, launch, and strategy implementation for Zip Notes, a consumer goods office product invention, as well as several other consumer product businesses. Jordan has experience in sales, marketing, operations, and strategic planning, with an affinity for high growth companies. Jordan currently sits on the Advisory Board for the Lazarus Investment Partners, an Israeli focused venture capital firm, as well as Advisory Council for the University of Colorado Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship.

Ron Fugate

Ron has an extensive track record of delivering high growth for CPG companies. We think it's a great fit with our goals here at UrgentRx.  In fact, we like to say… it's a match made in heaven. 

Ron was President and CEO of Alacer, makers of Emergen-C®, America’s leading branded vitamin C and the fastest growing dietary supplement and health and wellness lifestyle brand.  He and the Alacer team tripled the size of the Emergen-C business and led a highly competitive sale process that resulted in the sale of the company to Pfizer®.  Most recently, Ron was President of YoCrunch® (a Catterton Partners portfolio company), driving profitable growth and accelerating innovation in the highly competitive yogurt and refrigerated dairy category, culminating with the sale of YoCrunch to Danone®.  Across his earlier career, Ron held key roles in sales and marketing at blue-chip consumer products companies including Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg’s, and Bristol-Myers Squibb.  He has also served on the Executive Committee and Board of the Council for Responsible Nutrition and as a member of the Board of the Orange County Business Council.

Randall Kaplan

Most lawyers tell you when not to do something. It’s rare to find guys like Randall who can tell you how to get things done.

Randall is the Founder and President of JUMP Investors, a Los Angeles-based investment firm specializing in real estate, private equity, hedge funds, and venture capital. Since its formation, JUMP has invested in more than 40 early-stage technology companies, including Seagate, Google, and Postini, a leading email outsourcing company purchased by Google in 2007. In 1998, Randall co-founded Akamai Technologies, the leader in powering rich media, dynamic transactions, and enterprise applications online. Before co-founding Akamai, Randall was a Managing Director at SunAmerica Inc. specializing in mergers and acquisitions. Prior to SunAmerica, Randall practiced corporate and tax law for several years. Randall is a member of the Northwestern Law Board, serves on the Dean’s Advisory Council of the University of Michigan’s College of Arts, Sciences and Literature, and served on the board of directors of Arbinet, Inc. prior to its merger with Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc. Randall is also the owner and Managing Member of CollarCard, LLC, a Los Angeles-based promotional products company, and is also the Managing Member of Arbicha, LLC, a Los Angeles-based investment firm.

 
Dave Leyrer

With successes in an amazingly broad array of products and industries, it could be said that Dave is a true Renaissance man of modern business (even though he knows nothing about writing sonnets or swordsmanship).

Dave is a Co-Founder of Boulevard Capital Management, a Los Angeles-based investment boutique; Chairman of Citymaps, Inc., a NYC-based internet firm; Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Skeeter Snacks LLC, a consumer packaged goods company based in Westport, Connecticut; and advisor to The Entrepreneur’s Funds, a family of venture capital funds based in Menlo Park, California. In his past life, Dave was a Co-Founder and General Partner at Nexus Group LLC, a venture capital firm based in San Francisco and a Director of CSFB Technology Group and DMG Technology Group in San Francisco. Dave began his career at Salomon Brothers in New York. Dave has been a founding board member of Adopt-a-Classroom since 1999 and serves as Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees of P.S. Arts, a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization which partners with underserved public schools to provide students with a high-quality education in music, theater and/or visual arts.

Mike Valentino - Chairman

As a leader in the Pharmaceuticals industry, Mike helps navigate the every-changing waters of the OTC industry. 

Michael J. Valentino’s last commercial responsibility was with Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as President and Chief Executive Officer, following an initial role as a member of its Board. He brought to those roles over 30 years of leadership experience at both major pharmaceutical companies and venture backed start-ups.

Prior to joining Xanodyne, Valentino successfully built start-up Adams Respiratory Therapeutics into a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company with nearly $500 million in annual revenue and leading OTC brands such as Mucinex® and Delsym®. Under Mike’s leadership, Adams completed its initial public offering in July 2005, which was ranked by The Wall Street Journal as the No.1 Health Care IPO in 2005, and in December 2007, the Company entered into a definitive agreement under which it would be acquired by Reckitt Benckiser, a world leader in household cleaning, health and personal care, for approximately $2.3 billion. Previously, Valentino served as President and Chief Operating Officer at Alpharma, a leading global generic pharmaceutical company. Mr. Valentino served as Chairman of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association Board of Directors in 2001 and 2002. He also served as Vice Chairman of the Board of the Healthcare Institute of New Jersey, a trade association of 22 global pharmaceutical and medical technology companies.
