Commenting on his appointment as chair of the EMG, he said: “With the growing focus on the European Union and the future shape of the UK's relationship with Europe generally, EMG's views on the UK pharmaceutical industry's place within this becomes even more relevant.”

EMG represents UK operations in 17 research-driven pharma companies including Bayer, Novo Nordisk and Roche.
