He succeeds Madhavan Balachandran as executive vice president of operations

“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.”
