Pete Crabtree, R.Ph.

Director of Pharmacy Growth
Responsible for East & Middle TN, AL, SC, NC, IL, IN, GA and KY areas

Prior to joining the fred’s team 4 years ago, I was with one of the largest pharmacy chains in the country where I held numerous positions including pharmacist, district manager and pharmacy purchasing through acquisitions. Throughout my career, I’ve helped hundreds of owners transition into a chain environment. One of the biggest differences I’ve noticed at fred’s is how similarly they operate like an Independent Pharmacy by offering a quality of life that I do not feel any other chain can afford. The best part of my job is hearing stories from previous independent pharmacists about how happy they are after transitioning to fred’s Pharmacy.

Michael Deiter

Director of Pharmacy Growth
Responsible for West TN, AR, LA, MS, MO and TX areas

With over 30 years in the Healthcare Industry, I have a unique understanding of both the provider and the patient. My strength lies in my ability to develop a strong, supportive relationship with the independent pharmacist through a significant transition in their career. Many of my clients tell me that the “business side” has robbed them of the joy of patient care, which is why they got into pharmacy in the first place. fred’s Pharmacy provides the pharmacist the opportunity to focus on what they enjoy doing most in a community pharmacy setting. I look forward to talking with you about your future with a great company!
