Novartis Oncology Announces Executive Changes
Jun 1 14
Novartis AG said that it has appointed a senior executive of Merck & Co. (MRK), Bruno Strigini, as president of its oncology business, Novartis Oncology. His appointment is with immediate effect. Novartis said in mid-January that Herve Hoppenot resigned as president of Novartis Oncology to pursue a career opportunity outside of the organization. At that time, the company appointed Alessandro Riva as president of Novartis Oncology on an interim basis, until a successor was found for Hoppenot who has led the oncology business since 2010. Strigini most recently served as president for Merck's Europe/Canada operations. He has 25 years of experience in pharmaceuticals, animal health, OTC and vaccines, having led in both international and local roles. Strigini is a member of the Executive Committee for the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries & Associations or EFPIA, as well as a member of the Academie Nationale de Pharmacie in France.
