Perrigo has announced the appointment of Uwe Rohrhoff as its new president chief executive officer (CEO), effective as of January 15th 2018.

Mr Rohrhoff will bring to the role more than 25 years of experience accrued with Gerresheimer, a leading global manufacturer of pharmaceutical packaging products and medical devices, including seven years spent as its CEO.

During this time, he led an organisation operating 36 manufacturing facilities across 14 countries, delivering products to 1,500 customers, including the ten largest global pharmaceutical companies.
