Marys Biography:


Ms. Mary Magner

On joining United Drug in 2013 Mary Magner brought over six years’ experience across retail management, channel management, account management and category management to her role as Category Manager within Retail Initiatives in United Drug. Over the past two years Mary has used this experience while working with pharmacies nationwide to optimise their front of shop offering, through conducting category management store reviews, drawing insight from EPOS data, developing revised floor plans, making promotional plan recommendations and improving point of purchase value communication. Mary feels that the shopper is at the heart of all her work, “all decisions made in relation to the front of shop should have the shopper at their core, be they decisions regarding range, promotions, category space or positioning”.

Last year Mary was named as one of the ‘Dynamic 100’ by the IPN (Irish Pharmacy News) Magazine, an annual list celebrating Ireland’s top pharmacy industry achievers.
