Novartis' new executive team steps up its focus on manufacturing tech, digital efforts and ethics revamp. (Novartis)
Novartis just rejigged its executive committee for three obvious reasons: Its operations chief is leaving, it’s aiming for big things in digital and it needs to tighten focus on ethics and compliance after a series of scandals around the globe.
André Wyss, the Swiss drugmaker’s director of operations, is making a quick exit to “pursue opportunities outside of Novartis,” the company said in a Monday statement. His job will be divided up, but only one of his three successors joins the top brass.
