He succeeds Madhavan Balachandran as executive vice president of operations

In his new role Santos will take on responsibility for Amgen's operations, which encompasses manufacturing, process development, quality, engineering and its global supply chain, from Madhavan Balachandran who retires at the end of the year.

“I'm confident that Esteban and our operations team will maintain our track record of industry-leading performance in serving 'every patient, every time' as we expand globally, launch new products and introduce our next-generation of biomanufacturing technologies.”
