DiPasquale will oversee sales, marketing, and sales operations for Harrow’s rapidly growing portfolio of branded ophthalmic products. This new role reflects Harrow’s commitment to enhancing its leadership structure to support the Company’s continued growth. John Saharek, Harrow’s Chief Commercial Officer and Chief Executive Officer of ImprimisRx, will continue to oversee Harrow’s commercial business, focusing on the day-to-day management of Harrow’s market‑leading compounded division.

DiPasquale joins Harrow from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., where he served as National Business Director and was responsible for key account management and national sales of the anti-VEGF products EYLEA® and EYLEA® HD for its two highest volume indications. Under his leadership, sales of products under Greg’s portfolio grew from $4.5 billion to over $6 billion during a four-year period. Prior to this role, DiPasquale was Vice President and Head of Sales for the newly formed Retina Division of Novartis Ophthalmology, where he oversaw the development of the division’s sales infrastructure, spearheaded the launch of BEOVU®, and expanded the entire retina and ophthalmology product pipeline, generating over $1 billion in revenues in 2020. DiPasquale’s extensive experience also includes executive leadership positions at Bausch + Lomb as Vice President of Sales for the U.S. Vision Care business, at Zeiss Vision Care as Senior Vice President, with responsibility for profit and loss for its eyecare professional practice and the management of multiple lab operations and sales personnel throughout the U.S., and at Essilor USA. DiPasquale holds a Bachelor’s in Business Administration (BBA) from Ohio University and an Executive MBA from Kent State University. DiPasquale will be based in Harrow’s Nashville, Tennessee, corporate headquarters.

Commenting on DiPasquale’s addition to the Harrow team, Mark L. Baum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Harrow, said, “Over the last 16 years of Greg’s remarkable career, he has delivered outstanding economic and commercial results, playing a pivotal role in commercializing several highly successful ophthalmic pharmaceutical products. We are particularly excited about Greg’s experience and proven success serving the buy-and-bill, retina, and optometric markets given our recent launches of IHEEZO® and our plans to re-launch TRIESENCE® – products with large retina market opportunities – and our strong launch of VEVYE®, which has been so positively embraced by the medical optometric market as well as by ophthalmologists across the country. We are confident that Greg’s strategic acumen and track record of expanding major ophthalmic pharmaceutical franchises will prove invaluable to our success as we continue to leverage our branded product portfolio and execute our strategic plan to position Harrow as a leader in the North American ophthalmic pharmaceutical market.”

DiPasquale added, “I am exceedingly enthusiastic about joining Harrow, a dynamic, visionary, and service‑oriented company committed to enhancing patient access to critical eyecare medications. Leaders in eyecare have watched with admiration as Harrow has evolved into a significant strategic player in the ophthalmic pharmaceutical industry, starting from scratch with its ImprimisRx franchise and subsequently acquiring 18 branded products over the past two years. I look forward to utilizing the knowledge and experience gained throughout my 30+ year career to advance Harrow’s broad array of branded products, including, among others, IHEEZO, VEVYE, and soon TRIESENCE, and to working with the talented and dedicated Harrow team to take our company to the next level.”
