In an exclusive interview with Generics Bulletin, Sandoz’ CEO Richard Saynor explains how he wants the Novartis division to focus on the industry basics of being first-to-market with cost-competitive generics and biosimilars.
Sandoz has announced that partner Pear Therapeutics will now market alone the reSET and reSET-O digital therapeutics launched by the pair in the US almost a year ago. The move follows Richard Saynor taking charge of Sandoz as part of the Novartis unit’s current transformation.
Sandoz has a place within Novartis as a more autonomous unit, the Swiss group’s CEO Vas Narasimhan says. But the generics and biosimilars division will have to sharpen up, aided by a 7% workforce cut.
