Company Co-founder and President Joseph Morse, BA, class of 1995, accepted the honor in Gainesville
For the second year in a row, Therigy, LLC, the trusted source for consulting services and technology solutions for the specialty pharmaceutical market, has been named to the Gator100 — a list of the 100 fastest-growing businesses in the world owned or led by University of Florida alumni.
Ernst & Young calculated each company's compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the past three years to generate the ranking. Therigy came in at number 55, with a growth rate of 39 percent.
"We are thrilled to have been named to the Gator100 again this year," company Co-founder and President Joseph Morse said. "It is humbling to receive this award and be among so many great companies that are making a difference in their respective industries. It is a special time to celebrate the milestones we've achieved and give thanks to our valued customers and great employees who have helped Therigy advance the specialty pharmaceutical market."
More than 500 guests attended the Gator100 luncheon and awards ceremony. Former U.S. Senator and Florida Governor Bob Graham (BA '59) was the keynote speaker at the event. During the event, Morse participated on a panel titled "Lonely at the Top: Getting Advice and Mentoring When Running a High Growth Venture." He was joined by Scott Moss, President, Moss and Associates (number 91); Skye Perry, Founder and President, SSP Innovations (29); Bob Diener, Co-founder, Hotels.com and Getaroom.com (92); and Deborah Garcia Gratacos, President, DEVAL (86). The panel was moderated by Marty Schaffel, Founder and CEO, Audio Visual Innovations.
In addition to the Gator100, Therigy is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Morse and Russel Allinson, CEO and Chief Clinical Officer, co-founded Therigy in 2006. Jon Hamrick, Executive Vice-President, an MBA graduate of Florida's Warrington College of Business and long-term specialty pharmacy veteran, joined Therigy's executive team in 2011. In addition to dramatic growth in revenue, Therigy has seen a large increase in staff and is on track to employ 70 to 100 people by the end of 2016.
The company's signature product, TherigySTM, is used by more than 100 leading specialty pharmacies to provide superior care and therapy-specific clinical support to maximize adherence and improve patient outcomes.

TherigySTM is integrated with pharmacy dispensing systems including EnterpriseRx by McKesson, PDX, Speed Script, CPR+, PioneerRx, Rx30, Opus-ISM, and others.
"This is an exciting time for our company and the specialty pharmacy industry as a whole," Allinson said. "Therigy is proud to be one of the engines of economic development and job creation in Central Florida. I hope we can serve as a role model for other entrepreneurial companies."
