Brendan Fitzpatrick interim GPS head
An external search for a new Head of Global Product Supply has been initiated. It is, however, expected to be some time before a successor to Anders can be announced.
“On that background, I am very pleased to announce that Brendan Fitzpatrick, Vice President for Finished Goods Manufacturing in Ireland, has stepped up to take the lead on an interim basis with effect from 1 May 2014, reporting to me,” said Gitte P. Aabo, and continued:
“With Brendan Fitzpatrick at the helm and the support of the entire leadership team, we are able to secure the continued development of Global Product Supply.”
