This week's pharmaceutical changes begin with the election of Reuters' head to the Board of Pfizer.
Pfizer has elected the President and CEO of media giant Thomson-Reuters to its Board of Directors. As well as his Board membership, James Smith was appointed to the Corporate Governance and Science and Technology Committees of Pfizer’s Board.
Smith became Reuters’ CEO in January 2012, prior to which he was CEO and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Thomson Reuters Professional Division. Before the acquisition of Reuters by Thomson, he was COO of Thomson and President and CEO of Thomson Learning’s Academic and Reference Group.
The new board member also serves on the International Business Council of the World Economic Forum, the Board of Directors of the Brazil-US Business Council and the International Advisory Boards of British American Business and the Atlantic Council.
