BD names next chief executive officer

27th July 2011

BD has announced that Vincent Forlenza is to take over from Edward Ludwig as president and chief executive officer (CEO) from the start of October 2011.

Mr Forlenza has been with the company since 1980 and has served in roles of increasing seniority spanning all three of its business segments, becoming president in 2009 and chief operating officer last year.

He will also become a member of BD's board in October, with his appointment falling in line with the company's long-term succession planning strategy.

Meanwhile, the outgoing Mr Ludwig will remain with the company as executive chairman of the board through to June 2012, in order to assist with the transition period.

The current CEO said of his successor: "His broad array of achievements has prepared and eminently qualified him to lead BD to the next level as the company continues its journey to greatness."

Earlier this month, the firm named Dr Patrick Murray as worldwide director of scientific affairs for its diagnostic systems unit.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800635542-ADNFCR
