Roche's Dr Hagen Pfundner elected chairman of VFA

German pharmaceutical industry association also appoints Pfizer's Dr Andreas Penk as deputy chairman

Roche's Dr Hagen Pfundner has been elected chairman of the German pharmaceutical industry association, the Verband Forschender Arzneimittelhersteller (VFA).

He succeeds Bayer's Dr Wolfgang Plischke and will serve alongside Dr Andreas Penk from Pfizer, who was confirmed as deputy chairman.

Dr Pfundner is the CEO of Roche Pharma AG, Germany and managing director of Roche Holding GmbH Germany.

One of Dr Pfundner's first tasks at the VFA will be to push for further changes to the reforms outlined last year for AMNOG – Germany's system for pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement.

He said some “urgently necessary” amendments to the reforms were needed, including the introduction of a “benefit assessment” mechanism.
