“I am confident that this will be a seamless transition and that Ron will provide Perrigo and our financial team with strong leadership. I look forward to continuing to work alongside Ron."

Hendrickson added: "Judy's leadership has been instrumental in developing a high caliber finance team at Perrigo and assisted our efforts to drive growth across our global platform. On behalf of the board of directors and management, I would like to thank Judy for her contributions to Perrigo over her more than 15-year tenure with the company, and wish her all the best in her future endeavors."
