Pinder Sahota to step down as ABPI President
Pinder Sahota has made the decision to resign as President of the ABPI. He has made this decision to avoid an ongoing process around a Novo Nordisk ABPI Code of Practice breach becoming a distraction from the vital work of the ABPI.
Richard Torbett, Chief Executive, ABPI, said: “Pinder is a passionate advocate for the industry, and I want to thank him for his valuable contribution as ABPI President.
“I fully respect Pinder’s decision to step down as ABPI President which will in no way affect the ongoing case relating to Novo Nordisk. Any breach of the ABPI Code is taken extremely seriously and it is essential that all regulatory actions are robust, fair and transparent.”
ABPI Vice-President, Susan Rienow, Country President of Pfizer, will temporarily take on the roles and responsibilities of the ABPI President until a new President is chosen by the ABPI Board.
Further information relating to the specifics of the PMCPA case relating to Novo Nordisk is available from the PMCPA website.
