Almirall names new chief executive officer

1st September 2017

Almirall has announced the appointment of Peter Guenter as its new chief executive officer, effective as of October 1st 2017.

Mr Guenter joins the company from Sanofi, where he has spent 22 years in various roles of increasing responsibility, most recently as executive vice-president of the firm's diabetes and cardiovascular global business unit.

Prior to his time with Sanofi, he held different positions in sales and marketing at Smith Kline and Ciba Geigy, and can boast significant industry experience spanning a range of roles.

He has been appointed as the successor to Eduardo Sanchiz, who has been with Almirall for 13 years and was appointed as chief executive in July 2011. He is stepping down from the role to spend more time with his family and pursue other interests, with a transition taking place during September.

Jorge Gallardo, chairman of the board of Almirall, said: "He is a truly global leader and brings a wealth of experience in US, Europe and emerging markets. I am convinced he will bring what is needed to develop Almirall to the next level."
