Mission Pharmacal Company
Pennsylvania resident Terrell “Terry” Herring is an award-winning pharmaceutical executive with years of experience equipping healthcare providers with prescription medication. Since 2010, Terrell Herring has served as president of commercial operations at Mission Pharmacal Company (Mission).
Mission’s chief legal counsel, Lee Cusenbary, along with several other members of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) South/Central Texas Chapter, recently gained national recognition for their annual production Ethics Follies. On October 17, 2017, the Ethics Follies production team was awarded the ACC Outstanding Chapter Achievement Award for Innovative Programming due to their unique approach to delivering ethics training.
Conceptualized in 2003 by Cusenbary, Ethics Follies are musical comedy parodies of Broadway shows and hit songs. Each production highlights a series of current and relavent business ethics issues through reworkings of familiar musical numbers. Produced by the ACC South/Central Texas Chapter, these productions are often used by professionals across the globe to teach business ethics. Popular past parodies include Mia Culpa and Scamalot.
With the support of Mission, Ethics Follies just completed its 12th production with performances in both San Antonio and Whippany, New Jersey. The musicals have done far more than simply teach business ethics. Performances have been used as a platform to help raise funds for good causes. To date, Ethics Follies has raised more than $400,000 to provide free legal services to people in need in Texas. Proceeds from the 2017 New Jersey performance on November 10 were dedicated to Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.

In addition to serving as president of commercial operations for San Antonio-based Mission Pharmacal Company (“Mission”), Terrell “Terry” Herring is the of Alamo Pharma Services in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Herring’s duties at Mission revolve around producing pharmaceuticals in full compliance with all US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP).
Concerned with all aspects of drug manufacturing, processing, and packaging, CGMP regulations demand on-site inspections of pharmaceutical facilities and the examination of the methodology and controls that each pharmaceutical facility has in place. The FDA demands CGMP compliance reviews as part of its approval process for all new drug and generic drug marketing applications.
In order to encourage the use of modern technologies and drive industry innovation, CGMP requirements are designed to be somewhat flexible. This flexibility allows each manufacturer to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. As long as manufacturers employ scientifically sound operational principles, they have a great deal of leeway when developing facility processing structure and testing procedures.
