Background
As President & CEO of both Chemi Nutra and Chemi Pharma, Scott Hagerman draws on over 30 years of relevant experience in the nutritional supplement, food, and pharmaceutical industries. Chemi Nutra was incorporated by Hagerman in January 2001, as a wholly owned business unit of Chemi S.p.A., Milan, Italy, an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and nutraceutical ingredient manufacturer with worldwide presence. Chemi S.p.A., the parent company, is a vertically integrated business unit of Italfarmaco S.p.A., Milan, Italy, a globally known pharmaceutical company engaged in the manufacture and sales of finished dosage form pharmaceuticals and OTC products.
 
Chemi Nutra is specifically engaged in the discovery, development, research, branding, marketing, and sales of proprietary, science-based nutritional supplement ingredients, produced in Chemi’s own manufacturing plants located in Italy and Brazil.  These plants operate under rigorous cGMP standards and are subject to routine US FDA and governmental health ministry inspection, and in addition, are routinely audited by globally recognized pharmaceutical, OTC, food, and dietary supplement companies. In his tenure at Chemi Nutra, Hagerman has been intimately involved in the discovery and commercialization of several new, novel, proprietary nutritional ingredients, which have been subsequently brought to market.
 
Hagerman engineered the closing of the Chemi Pharma office in Exton, PA, in October 2004, and the business was subsequently reorganized and relocated to the existing office / warehouse complexes in White Bear Lake, MN. Hagerman was then appointed President of Chemi Pharma and assumed the managing duties. Chemi Pharma is currently engaged in regulatory filing submissions to the FDA for future generic pharmaceutical finished products, and also supports the sales and marketing of Chemi’s APIs to generic and branded pharmaceutical companies in North and South America.
 
Hagerman has been directly involved in the development, and marketing and sales of many novel specialty nutraceutical and functional food compounds, launched successfully over his career, and also has extensive experience in regulatory affairs, patents, licensing, and trademarks, and in analytical and research arenas. Hagerman has initiated a large number of outcome based research studies involving sports performance nutrition and weight management targeted ingredients, and is an inventor named on four patents. 
 
Prior to his involvement with Chemi Nutra, Hagerman worked with Bioenergy, Minneapolis, MN, as Vice President, Nutritional Products, and was involved in the commercial launch of D-ribose as a dietary supplement and functional food ingredient. In addition, Hagerman is an inventor on several patents related to D-ribose. Prior to this, Hagerman worked with Lucas Meyer, Decatur, IL, as Director of Sales & Marketing and as Vice President, where he was involved in the commercial introduction of phosphatidylserine (PS), which was co-marketed with Chemi S.p.A., Milan, Italy, to the nutritional supplement industry. Hagerman began his career working for ten years with Pfizer, New York, NY, in their Specialty Chemical and Food Science divisions, engaged in various sales and marketing capacities involving specialty food ingredients.
 
By combining his experience in nutrition science research, an education that includes a BS Degree in Food Science & Human Nutrition from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, an MBA Degree in Marketing & Finance from Keller Graduate School of Management, Chicago, IL, and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) accredited certification with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Hagerman is personally committed to the practice of healthy nutrition and physical fitness, and serves as a strong ambassador to the nutritional supplement, functional food, and sports nutrition industries.
