Founder and President of RXQ Compounding LLC
Edward J. Zatta, RPh
Ed has been involved in the pharmacy industry since 1988, when he graduated from Ohio Northern University. For the last 8 years Ed has been developing 4 retail pharmacy stores in the Southern Ohio/WV Area. Ed has taken the sales of all of his pharmacies from 3.8 million dollars in 2007, to revenues of 15 million in 2015.
In the spring 2014, Ed, while attending an Ohio Pharmacist Association Meeting, and listening to a presentation by attorney Lee Rosebush, learned that many of the compounding practices his pharmacies currently conducted would soon be illegal, based upon new FDA regulations requiring companies that do compounding work to meet new licensing requirements under FDA Regulation Section 503(B). It was at that lecture that Ed introduced himself to Lee. In striking up that conversation, Ed decided then and there to take on the new regulations and seize on to what he sees as a burgeoning opportunity. He would set up a new entity, a 503(B) FDA approved Outsourcing Facility, and, thus, RXQ Compounding, LLC, was born. Lee collaborated with ED and guided the development of RXQ. After forming the company in 2014, the facility went online and began compounding in RXQ’s clean rooms under the new FDA guidelines by July of 2015. Since January 2015, both the FDA and the Ohio Board of Pharmacy have recognized RXQ Compounding, LLC, as a duly licensed 503(B) outsourcing facility in full compliance with all state and FDA licensing rules and regulations.
On a personal note, Ed is married, and he and his wife, Jennifer, have three extremely active children, Alexis 17; Lindsay 16, and; Ethan 13. The Zattas reside in the College town of Athens, Ohio and enjoy spending time together traveling, on the ski slopes together or just at home. Ed is also an extremely avid biker who, in 2014, road his bicycle on a cross country trip from Palm Springs, CA to West Palm Beach Florida, as fund raiser for the “Paley Foundation.” This organization does limb lengthening surgeries for children, a charity for which Ed has a great passion.
