Philip has a management consulting background from Bain & Company and attained his M.Sc. in Finance and Accounting from Copenhagen Business School and University of Michigan’s Ross Business School.
“I am confident that Philip will be a strong addition to the Global Leadership Team of LEO Pharma. He has an impressive track record as a global CFO from industry leading organizations and as a highly experienced strategic leader. I look very much forward to working closely with Philip as LEO Pharma goes through the next important steps of transformation,” said Christophe Bourdon, CEO of LEO Pharma.
“Joining LEO Pharma represents a unique opportunity for me to return to the healthcare industry. Also, I am excited about LEO Pharma’s transformational journey ahead supported by the joint ownership of the LEO Foundation and Nordic Capital. I look forward to meeting all my new colleagues and working together to make a real difference for people living with skin conditions,” said Philip Eickhoff.
Philip succeeds Anders Kronborg, who joined LEO Pharma in 2015. Anders has served as CFO and as Interim CEO during his time at LEO Pharma. He will retire from the company to pursue opportunities as a professional board member and advisor.
