Michael Cola - ShireShire's Michael Cola is to resign as president of the company's specialty pharmaceuticals business.

“With the company in a position of tremendous strength it is time for me to explore new career opportunities and challenges,” he said. “It has been an honour to work with my colleagues at Shire.”

Cola had been with Shire for seven years, joining as executive VP and general manager for the company's global therapeutic business units.

His role will be taken over by the company's CEO Angus Russell while the search for a new president is carried out.
