With my Wall Street background, I am often asked why I would want to be the CEO of a specialty pharma company like ProPhase Labs.
The answer is simple: turning around companies, increasing shareholder value and protecting shareholder interests are my passion.
I financed and advised ID Biomedical, a biotech/vaccine company, when it was valued at $25 million and headed for bankruptcy. I successfully persuaded the board of directors into making difficult but necessary changes to management, including the replacement of the CEO, and helped to redirect their strategic focus. Seven years later, the company was sold to GlaxoSmithKline for more than $1.4 billion.
While advising ID Biomedical, I began a similar decade-long engagement with ProPhase Labs. After years of declining revenues, increasing losses and questionable activities, the company’s direction was in dire need of change--and the shareholders’ interests in need of protection. I initiated a risky but incredibly successful proxy contest that led to my position as CEO.
In 2010/2011, I restructured and streamlined all operations. Despite a declining category and a weak economy at that time, sales and margins of our flagship Cold-EEZE brand subsequently improved dramatically. The net result: in 2017 we sold Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy for $50 million to Mylan, a multibillion-dollar pharmaceutical company.
I approach business relationships with candor and honesty--whether I'm talking to potential investors, vendors, shareholders or employees. I motivate my team by example and get enormous satisfaction out of working hard. I believe in winning--by earning it. And most importantly, I think about what’s best for our shareholders' long-term interests in everything I do.

Dr. Ilyayev Received his training from NY Methodist Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in Manhattan. He is in the forefront of continuing education, always looking for new medical breakthroughs to help his patients.
Dr. Ilyayev started his HouseCall MD practice right after completing his residency. He realized that there were elderly homebound patients who have not seen a doctor in years. He also realized that by seeing these patients in their home, this would decrease the rate of hospitalizations thereby doing his role in decreasing our national healthcare related costs.
Dr. Erik Ilyayev’s positive attitude and self-motivation is the reason he is booked one month in advance.
