New Management in Pharma: Insiderism

Executive Summary

Big Pharma is under the gun, with plenty of top management changes. By early next year, the industry will have seen five new CEOs; five new CFOs; a handful of changes in the top R&D spots, and a couple of new commercial bosses, all announced since the beginning of 2007 (an exhibit charts the changes).
