Bayer aligns organization with Life Science businesses
Following the economic and legal separation of Covestro, Bayer is charting the course for its successful development as a Life Science company. On Friday, the Supervisory Board approved the reorganization proposed by the Board of Management. From January 1, 2016, the company’s business will be managed by three divisions: Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Health and Crop Science.
The present structure of a strategic management holding company and operational subgroups will be replaced by an integrated organization under the umbrella of the strong Bayer brand. “The aim of the new organization is to provide the best-possible support to Bayer’s strategy as a leading Life Science company and to put ourselves in an even stronger position vis-à-vis our competitors. We can achieve this by further improving our innovation strength, sharpening our customer focus and strengthening business process excellence,” said Dr. Marijn Dekkers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Bayer AG.
In the new organization, the Board of Management of Bayer AG will also hold overall responsibility for business operations. For this reason, the Supervisory Board resolved to appoint the heads of the divisions - Dieter Weinand (Pharmaceuticals), Erica Mann (Consumer Health) and Liam Condon (Crop Science) - to the Board of Management effective January 1, 2016. On the same date, Dr. Hartmut Klusik will also join the Board of Management of Bayer AG as the new Labor Director and Board member responsible for Human Resources, Technology and Sustainability. He will succeed Michael König, who has requested that his contract not be extended.
