Carl Birdsong, RPh
President & Chief Compliance Officer
Carl is the president and a member of the board of directors of Maxor National Pharmacy Services Corporation. In his role as president, Carl oversees all eight of Maxor’s national divisions
Carl began his career at Maxor in 1978 as a part-time delivery person while attending West Texas State University on a football scholarship. Later on, he enrolled at Southwestern Oklahoma State University School of Pharmacy, during which time he continued his football career. He was a NAIA All-American punter and was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1981. During his NFL career, Carl was named to the All-NFC Rookie Team, led the NFC in punting in 1982, and earned All-Pro honors for the 1983 season.
After graduating from pharmacy school with honors in 1983, Carl began his pharmacy career with Maxor as a staff pharmacist. He started Maxor’s infusion pharmacy division in 1986, which quickly developed into one of the company’s most successful divisions.
In business, as in athletics, Carl has used a winning combination of teamwork, perseverance and the power of a competitive spirit. As he sees it comes down to being a team player because rarely, if ever, is one individual responsible for success, whether it’s on a football team or in a business. At Maxor, Carl continues to help lead an incredible group of professionals, all working together in a team atmosphere to benefit our clients and our company.
