As well as an excellent track-record in developing effective strategies and consistently delivering growth to bring medication to our markets, Andrew has also been recognized for his ability to bring teams together and develop those working for him.

‘I am excited to join a company with a focus on growing in emerging markets. The healthcare landscape in the Middle East & Africa is rapidly changing and now more than ever it is important to deliver high quality affordable medicines to all patients in these markets’ Andrew said.

We wish Andrew a good start with Acino as we promote high-quality, affordable healthcare in emerging markets.
