Takeda appoints chief financial officer and corporate officer

James Kehoe takes on both roles from 15 June

Japanese pharmaceutical company Takeda has named James Kehoe as its new chief financial officer and corporate officer, based in Tokyo.

Kehoe moves to Takeda from Kraft Foods Group, where he most recently held the role of chief financial officer.

He first joined the American group in 2005 taking up the role of vice president of finance for Europe, and has since held a number of increasingly senior positions across Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

Christophe Weber, president and chief executive officer of Takeda, said: “James Kehoe's passion for transforming large organisations to achieve higher performance will hold him in good stead as he leads the global finance team to further elevate the company's business performance and help Takeda deliver its growth ambitions.”

He added: “We also believe that James's values are very much aligned with Takeda's values and that his personal style will work well with the Takeda executive team and the finance leadership team.”
