BRUSSELS, 25 May 07:00 (CET) - regulated information - With UCB set to enter its growth phase in 2012 and building on major advances in its late-stage pipeline, UCB announced today that two new members will join the companyís Executive Committee as of July 1, 2011.

The two new members are the heads of the US and European commercial operations, respectively Greg Duncan, currently Senior Vice President and President of UCBís North American Operations, and Jean-Christophe Tellier, joining UCB from Ipsen.

These additions will allow Mark McDade, UCBís EVP Global Operations and Chief Operating Officer to focus on UCBís future growth markets outside the US and Europe, while driving UCBís commercial growth strategy across all geographies. Mark will also continue to lead Business Development and maintains his global leadership of the companyís Marketing, Access and Medical Affairs functions, preparing the launch and commercialization of the next generation of medicines from UCBís promising late-stage pipeline, such as brivaracetam in epilepsy, epratuzumab in Lupus and Sclerostin antibody in post-menopausal osteoporosis and fracture healing.

He then became President of European and Emerging Market Operations until 2009 when he was appointed President of UCBís North American operations.

Jean-Christophe Tellier is joining UCB from Ipsen where he was President & General Manager Ipsen US. His role at Ipsen was to strengthen Ipsenís specialty care business in North America, in the areas of endocrinology and neurology. Prior to joining Ipsen in May 2009, he was Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at MacroGenics Inc, a Maryland-based biotechnology company.
