Ipsen has appointed Benoit Hennion as executive vice president and president of primary care.

Hennion will report directly to David Meek, CEO of Ipsen, and will join the executive leadership team. Jean Fabre, who has led the primary care business since 2011, will step down from the position in March 2017 to pursue a new career opportunity at another company.

Meek said: "I would like to acknowledge the tremendous contribution made by Jean Fabre, who has been with our company for nearly a decade. It is my great pleasure to welcome his successor, Benoit Hennion, to the executive leadership team as executive vice president and president, primary care.

"Throughout his 11 years at Ipsen, Benoit has consistently demonstrated his strategic vision and ability to drive change. His thorough knowledge of Ipsen’s primary care portfolio, together with his broad, international leadership experience and indisputable leadership skills, will enable Benoit to play a central role in the on-going transformation of our global primary care operations into a sustainable business focused on meeting our patients’ needs."

Hennion joined Ipsen in 2006 within the corporate strategic planning team. In 2009, he became primary care business unit head for France, and subsequently, in 2011, general manager of France operations (including both specialty care and primary care). Following the split between specialty care and primary care in 2014, Hennion was appointed vice president of Asia-Pacific specialty care.
