Sanofi has appointed Tarja Stenvall as the new general manager for its operations in the UK and Ireland.

Stenvall joins Sanofi from rival pharma company AstraZeneca (AZ) where she served as country president for Belgium and Ireland. She replaces Steve Oldfield who spent five years in the role as part of a 20-year career at Sanofi.

The move is a return to the UK for Stenvall who spent two years as director of specialist care for AZ in the country from 2010 to 2012 before moving to her role in Belgum/Luxembourg.

Her career also includes spells at Pfizer as marketing director for its operations in Finland and a global brand manager position at AZ.

David Loew, senior VP of commercial operations in Europe, commented: “We are excited to bring Tarja on board as a new member of the European Leadership Team. Her broad experience in diverse markets will ensure she can lead our UK and Ireland affiliates to provide a solid contribution to patients' needs in those two markets.”
