Janssen Cesar Rodriguez.

Janssen's managing director for the UK and Ireland has moved to a new role in China.

Cesar Rodriguez has been named managing director and president of Xian Janssen, the Chinese subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson's pharma division Janssen.

The move marks another step in a well-travelled career for Rodriguez, which includes spells in Spain, Romania and, during the Arab Spring, Egypt.

At his most recent role in the UK, Rodriguez's significant accomplishments included leading Janssen as the top-ranked pharma company in The Sunday Times' Best Companies To Work For in 2012 and achieving a 100 per cent success rate with NICE in 2013.

The company also won The Accenture Award for PMEA Company of the Year at PMEA 2013 last week.

Kim Taylor, company group chairman, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Asia Pacific, praised the experience of Rodriguez.

She said: “With almost two decades of work experience at Janssen in various commercial and senior leadership roles, Cesar will bring to the company in-depth understanding and insights on business strategy, a track record of delivering business growth in highly complex and diverse markets, and a career-long commitment to integrity and talent development.”

Rodriguez said he was looking forward to the challenges offered by a new market.

He said: “China faces tremendous unmet medical need, and I am excited to be joining Xian Janssen at a time when we are in an unparalleled position to serve that need and to bring important life-saving drugs to patients and families who need them.”
