Mission Family of Companies’ Espada Dermatology continues specialized therapeutic service line growth

Founded to specialize in esthetic dermatology, the company has expanded offerings to include prescription products for a wide range of dermatological conditions.

SAN ANTONIO (July 26, 2017) – For many years, San Antonio-based Mission Pharmacal Company (“Mission”) has manufactured and marketed highly specialized dermatology products. Utilizing only the finest ingredients, these products help ease patient suffering related to specific dermatologic conditions including acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and other steroid responsive skin conditions. In 2016, the company acquired Glyderm® skin care products and formed Espada Dermatology, Inc. (“Espada”) to market the esthetic dermatology product line. A talented team of Mission dermatology experts and new leaders with their own extensive pharmaceutical experiences were brought together to lead Espada.The results have been so positive that Mission has shifted all products in its dermatology-related portfolio to Espada.

“We are working diligently, building on the strong foundation the Mission Dermatology team established as we continue to offer and develop high quality prescription products for a vast array of dermatological conditions,” says Espada Vice President and General Manager, Trey Schutz. “As the business has transitioned to Espada, we have been deliberate in our efforts to fulfill the ultimate objective of offering quality products that address new levels of patient care and achieve positive outcomes.”

Joining Schutz in leading Espada as Executive Director of the dermatology commercial team is David Kinnard who served in a similar role with Mission Dermatology. Together, Schutz and Kinnard oversee what now represents Mission’s (through Espada) most rapidly growing therapeutic area of focus.  The company offers a growing portfolio of both prescription and esthetic dermatology products through their specially trained dermatology sales force.

“Our intent has been to meld our collective experiences and long-lasting physician relationships to strengthen the overall program and the organization’s commitment to skin health innovation,” says Kinnard. “Going to events such as the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Summer Meeting (scheduled July 27-30 in New York City) provides a tremendous opportunity for us to spread the word about what we’re doing – what’s new and innovative – to help physicians, nurses, caregivers, and ultimately patients. It is an exciting time to be with the organization.”
