Our executive team

The organisation is broadly run in three business units; The Professional Body, Commercial Services, Pharmaceutical Press. Their work is derived from strategies and plans crafted by all the Boards (the three National boards and Pharmaceutical Press Board under an operating agreement with the Assembly).

The Executive Team is chaired by the CEO and is comprised of all Directors and the Head of HR. The group oversees the operational management of the whole organisation, particularly business management, finance and resourcing; affordability; efficiency: overarching operational performance; operational policy; the interface of commercial services, Pharmaceutical Press and the Professional Body. It is the vehicle for any driving cross organisational change.
