AstraZeneca’s Bruce Burlington will retire at the end of August 2017 as a Non-Executive Director and as a member of the Audit Committee, the Nomination and Governance Committee, and from his role as Chairman of the Science Committee, after seven years’ stay with the company.
Leif Johansson, Chairman of AstraZeneca, praised Burlington’s contribution to the Board’s work over the years. “We have valued his insightful and frank participation as a Board member, and Chairman of the Science Committee during a period of innovation-led transformation at AstraZeneca. His diligence and commitment to the work of the Audit Committee and the Nomination and Governance Committee should also be acknowledged. On behalf of all Board members, we will miss Bruce as a colleague and send him our very best wishes for the future,” said Johansson.
