J&J names McNeil Consumer leader

Johnson & Johnson has named Denice Torres, a former Lilly executive, to lead its McNeil Consumer Healthcare division, which recently has faced dozens of high-profile product recalls

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has named Denice Torres, a former Lilly executive who has spent the past six years working at J&J, to lead its troubled McNeil Consumer Healthcare division, which recently has faced dozens of high-profile product recalls.

Torres, who will serve as president of the J&J unit, has been with the company since 2005, when she was hired to serve as VP, marketing, Ortho McNeil Neurologics.

In 2007, she became VP, sales & marketing, biosurgery and biopatch at J&J's medical devices company Ethicon, and in August 2009, she was named president, CNS, North America Pharmaceuticals.

Earlier in her career, Torres was with Eli Lilly for 14 years, becoming executive director by the time she left the company.

In her new position at J&J, Torres will report to Pat Mutchler, who was recently named chairman of a newly created McNeil group that is responsible for Tylenol, Motrin and other nonprescription J&J drugs.
