ABPI Promotes Colette Goldrick to Executive Director Position

13th April 2023

The new ABPI Senior Director, Colette Goldrick, will be responsible for connecting businesses and stakeholders and devolved territories.

The position was previously held by Elliot Dunster, who recently left to embark on a new adventure at the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations as their Executive Director of communications.

As Senior Director, Goldrick will oversee the ABPI’s government relations and communications efforts, and its operations across the UK in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Goldrick is a member of the ABPI’s senior team, and her immediate line of supervision will remain the same, with Chief Executive Dr Richard Torbett as her manager.

Goldrick’s career began in 1989 after she graduated from Queen’s University Belfast. Her first industry role was in a graduate training programme held by GSK. She progressed within the business over the next years, and in 1996 was promoted to Head of Communications, the youngest person to have held this position at the company.

She indulged in a few other roles prior to coming to ABPI in 2012, where she was appointed Director of Northern Ireland. The following year, Goldrick switched to Head of International Affairs, before a second jump in 2015 to their UK Lead of NHS partnerships.

In 2021, Goldrick saw another career progression opportunity, and was promoted to Executive Director of research, planning, and corporate collaboration.
