Lundbeck has appointed Marie-Laure Pochon as its new Executive Vice President of Commercial Operations and slim lined its Executive Management Group in the process.
The new EVP has joined the Group after “realising high growth” as the Chief Executive of Lundbeck France and the Regional Vice President for France, Belgium, UK, Spain, Italy, Turkey & Germany.
Ulf Wiinberg, President and CEO, says he is “very pleased that Marie-Laure Pochon is joining Lundbeck’s Executive Management Group, where she can contribute with her strong commercial experience from a long career in the pharmaceutical industry”.
The company says it will “execute on many new opportunities” to implement its strategy and secure long-term growth and will reduce its Executive Management from six to four members in order to do so.
Peter Høngaard Andersen will now exit the Executive Management, but continue as part of Lundbeck’s corporate management team as Senior Vice President, External Scientific Relations & Patents.
Lars Bang will also leave the Group, but continue his role as Senior Vice President, Supply Operations & Engineering, leading Lundbeck’s global supply chain.
As a result, Anders Götzsche, Executive Vice President, CFO, Anders Gersel Pedersen, Executive Vice President, R&D, plus Ulf Wiinberg and Marie-Laure Pochon, now complete the Group.
