Edward Hensley AssistRx Leadership

Edward Hensley

Chief Commercial Officer

Edward Hensley has served as chief commercial officer for AssistRx since founding the company with Jeff Spafford in 2009. Beginning his career in the infusion industry with Curaflex (Coram Healthcare) in 2002, he moved to a small division of the organization that focused on the growing self‐injectable and relatively unknown specialty pharmacy market. As vice president of pharmaceutical relations, he was responsible for all contracting, as well as business and program development. Within one year, a management‐led buyout of the division by Express Scripts took place, and the organization was immediately rebranded as CuraScript.

After successfully transitioning his role following the Express Scripts transaction in 2004, he went on to create Advanced Care Scripts in the fall of 2005. After experiencing explosive growth, he sold and transitioned the business to Omnicare, Inc. in late 2008. Applying his years of experience in the specialty pharmacy reimbursement and distribution channels, he co-founded AssistRx alongside Jeff Spafford.

Hensley holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from The University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Business Administration from The Jones School of Business at Rice University.
