Prior to this, he oversaw regulation of generic medicines at the FDA as director of office of generic drug. This followed a period serving in several other leadership roles within the FDA.

This includes holding responsibility for advancing the approval of drugs and providing guidance on regulatory strategy for products in development.

Perrigo's Chairman, president and CEO Joseph Papa commented that Webber “brings to us a wealth of strategic, scientific and regulatory experience from his years working with the FDA”.
