Michael & Les Spartalis
Michael Spartalis was born in Western Australia and graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Pharmacy. He was awarded ‘Trainee of the Year’ and graduated with distinction in 1993. Michael commenced a career in community pharmacy and now operates three pharmacies in the Perth metropolitan area.
Michael is an accredited pharmacist with some innovative, unique ideas and a strong vision.
In 1998, Michael and his father Les Spartalis, also a Pharmacist, embarked on a new project that saw the establishment of the Michael’s® brand; a unique range of health care products available throughout Australia and some parts of Asia and Europe.
Michael currently assists the Pharmaceutical Society of Western Australia (PSWA) with education and examination of final year students as well as conducting lectures for Pharmacists. He was also awarded PSWA Preceptor of the Year in 2012 for his contribution to the education of final year pharmacy students.
Les Spartalis has been a trusted Community Pharmacist for over 50 years. Over this period, Les has received recognition for his work as a preceptor for aspiring pharmacists, for educating and training both Curtin and UWA students.
His extensive knowledge and experience were a key pillar in the formation of Michael’s Products. Along with his son, Michael, Les strived to create the best therapeutic product formulas based on pharmaceutical medicine and natural ingredients.
By managing his own pharmacy for decades Les has developed a strong relationship with his community. Many of his loyal customers played a vital role in trialling the very first products created by Michael and Les, as well as providing feedback which has ultimately made the products what they are today.
