Mr. Sampson is a life long entrepreneur who has successfully built, sold and merged a number of businesses across a wide array of industries. What spurred Mr. Sampson to build Secure Symbology into the technologically dominant anti-counterfeiting powerhouse that it quickly has become was a 2003 trip to Asia where he saw a great deal of manufacturing prowess, but little governmental controls that could insure against the misuse of the great manufacturing capacity across a wide variety of products. Given his passion for using leading-edge technologies to create or improve processes and outcomes, Mr. Sampson has developed and patented more than a dozen methods and systems for achieving unit-level serialization of prescription and OTC drugs to prevent counterfeit medications and to protect the pharma industry alike.
