Novo Nordisk announced the promotion of four corporate vice presidents to senior vice presidents on its US Executive team.
Effective March 1, 2013, the following members of the U.S. Executive Team will assume the title of senior vice president in their respective areas: Andy Ajello, U.S. National Diabetes Sales; Camille Lee, U.S. Diabetes Marketing; Alan Moses, MD, global chief medical officer; and Anne Phillips, MD, U.S. Clinical, Medical and Regulatory Affairs.
Earlier today, Novo Nordisk released its 2012 earnings statement, highlighting 43 consecutive quarters of double digit growth. The U.S. now contributes more than 40% (42%) to the company's global revenues.
"The size and complexity of the U.S. business has increased dramatically, which places great demands on our leaders," said Jerzy Gruhn, president of Novo Nordisk Inc., the company's US affiliate. "Our global leaders have recognized that certain positions within the U.S. organization now have such high impact on the company's overall performance that they should be elevated to the senior vice president level. The same is true for the role of Global Chief Medical Officer, which has grown in impact with the increasing number of promising projects in our development pipeline."
Andy, Camille, and Anne will continue to serve on the U.S. Executive Team, reporting to Jerzy. Alan will move to the company's global headquarters in Denmark and report to Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president and chief science officer, later in 2013. All will become members of the company's senior management board, a group comprised of Novo Nordisk's senior-most leaders.
