ABPI Richard TorbettThe Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) has appointed Richard Torbett as executive director - commercial UK.

He will take up the role at the end of this month, moving from European pharma trade association EFPIA, where he was chief economist and director of strategy.

In his new role Torbett will be responsible for heading up the ABPI's commercial strategy and leading its UK commercial team, and will report to the ABPI's chief executive.

Alison Clough, acting CEO, said: “With his wealth of knowledge and expertise, Richard will be very well placed to direct the ABPI's commercial strategy and to lead the UK commercial team.

“His experience in both government and the pharmaceutical industry will prove invaluable when addressing the issues of access and use of new medicines in the NHS and in leading discussions with the Department of Health around the PPRS.”

At the ABPI Torbett will focus on pricing, the Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS), health technology assessments (HTA) and value assessment, as well as market access in the UK.
