Alcon announces new presidential appointment

9th January 2009

Alcon has announced the appointment of its new president and chief executive, following the retirement of Cary Rayment.

The company, which deals in a number of pharmaceuticals within the ophthalmic industry, said Kevin Buehler will assume the role when Mr Rayment steps down on March 31st.

However, the former president will continue to serve the firm as a director and non-executive chairman of the board – and will be nominated as a board member before shareholders make a final decision on this at Alcon’s Annual General Meeting.

Commenting on his own appointment, Mr Buehler said that leading Alcon and its 15,000 employees was something which he was very much looking forward to and added that he hoped the future was bright for the group.

“Alcon is well-positioned as the leader in our industry and I will do all that I can to build on that sound foundation to allow Alcon to achieve sustained growth,” he noted.

Mr Buehler leaves behind his role as senior vice-president in March, having originally joined Alcon in 1984 as regional sales manager for consumer products.

It was also announced that the company would report its fourth quarter financial results on Wednesday, February 11th – with a conference call featuring Mr Rayment to follow.
