Enzymatica has recruited two people, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) has appointed a new presidency team, and the US Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) has honoured a longtime industry leader.
Enzymatica’s two new recruits
Enzymatica – the Swedish company behind the ColdZyme common cold spray – has recruited Charlotte Andersson as director quality assurance and Stefan Olsson as communication manager.
Andersson will join Enzymatica on 1 September 2021 from BioInvent where she is senior quality assurance advisor. She replaces Asa Anderlind who is leaving Enzymatica.
Olsson, who joins Enzymatica on 1 July 2021, has worked for a number of communication agencies including Prime Weber Shandwick and Sund Kommunikation as well as KPMG. He succeeds Carl-Johan Wachtmeister who is retiring.
Enzymatica said Olsson would also work for other clients.
EFPIA’s new presidency team
The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) has named Hubertus von Baumbach as president for the next two years.
Von Baumbach is chairman of the board of managing directors at Germany’s Boehringer Ingelheim.
The industry association has also appointed Lars Fruergaard Jørgensen – Novo Nordisk’s president and chief executive officer – as its first vice-president.
Olivier Laureau – president of Servier – has been appointed second vice-president.
EFPIA said its new presidency team was committed to “working with the European Union and member states to build back better from the COVID-19 crisis”.
US CHPA honours Scott Emerson
The US Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) has presented the Ivan D Combe Lifetime Achievement Award to Scott Emerson, president and founder of The Emerson Group.
Scott Melville, the CHPA’s president and chief executive officer, said Emerson had “made an enormous contribution, not just to the CHPA, but to its members and the broader consumer healthcare space as well”.
“He’s passionate about making lasting connections between brands and consumers and is committed to mentoring and developing leaders for the future,” added Melville.
The CHPA says the annual award recognises the "outstanding work and contributions of individuals whose actions have created a lasting impact on the people and the affairs of the consumer healthcare sector, and who have directly improved self-care for US consumers".
The award is named in honour of Ivan D Combe who served on the CHPA’s board from 1958 until 2000.
