Chief Executive Officer
An accomplished businessman for over 30 years, Myers has a passion for mentoring and helping individuals and companies reach further levels of success. Through the years, Myers has had the opportunity to work for and manage recognizable and nationwide businesses, as well as establish his own companies.
In 2009, Myers began RAM Pharmaceuticals. After decades of successfully restructuring, rebuilding and building a variety of businesses, Myers decided it was time to meet a new and personal challenge. As a young man, Myers had faced a constant battle with painful mouth ulcers, with the only real treatment being very painful silver nitrate sticks. Myers recognized that dentists and doctors had no viable medications they could prescribe over the counter to treat the problem. In recent years, Myers created a device that would deliver medication to all areas of the mouth. Not only does this device cure the pain of Aphthous Stomatitis, or reoccurring ulcerative mouth lesions, it can also be used for Oncology Patients, HIV Patients, and Silk Road Disease patients who suffer from severe ulcerative mouth lesion issues. To this day, Myers’ main focus is to bring healthcare providers the ability to not only treat the problem, but to now treat the cause.
Myers is a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi and holds a bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management/Marketing. Myers also serves on the board of the Pinebelt Chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He is married to Tina Hatcher of Jackson, MS, and has two children, Peyton and Luke.
