"Our biopharmaceutical business will be increasingly important to our growth in the U.S. as we apply the protein expertise developed through our diabetes franchise to helping people with hemophilia and growth disorders manage their conditions more effectively," Jesper Hoiland, president of Novo Nordisk, the company's U.S. affiliate, said. "That business has flourished under Eddie's experienced leadership. His promotion to senior vice president demonstrates the company's focus on, and commitment to, our pipeline of life-changing biological therapies."
