The Proprietary Association of Great Britain (PAGB), which represents OTC companies in the UK, has elected Carlton Lawson of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as its new president.

On March 3 Lawson, who is general manager of GSK's consumer health business in the UK and Ireland, will take over from Novartis' David Barnett who moves to a new position in Latin America.

Lawson was only appointed to his current GSK position last year having previously served as global business lead in oral heath at the healthcare giant.

This followed a career that included senior sales and brand roles at Warner Lamber, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. He has experience with the PAGB too, being elected vice president in 2007.

Matthew Speers, chief executive of the PAGB, said he was “looking forward to working with Lawson”.

“Having served on the PAGB board previously when he was general manager at Johnson & Johnson, he has in-depth knowledge of PAGB and this past experience will be a great asset in helping drive forward PAGB's work programme, particularly the better regulation agenda,” said Speers.
