Introducing our new Managing Director – Gaëtan Leblay


On 1 April 2019, Janssen - the pharmaceutical companies of Johnson & Johnson - welcomed Gaëtan Leblay as the new Managing Director for UK & Ireland.

With a passion for putting patients first and a strong track-record of driving patient access in global and regional roles across a 16-year career at Janssen, Gaëtan brings his vast international experience to support the teams working to address some of the UK & Ireland’s most pressing health challenges.

Gaëtan joins us from Budapest where he led the Janssen Central Europe organisation and despite beginning his career with Janssen France, he is no stranger to the UK – having studied for his MBA at Warwick Business School. “I am honoured to be leading the Janssen UK & Ireland business during this pivotal time and I believe we have a huge opportunity ahead of us,” said Gaëtan Leblay. “I am fully committed to building on the amazing work that has already been done here, so we can continue making a real difference to the lives of patients and their loved ones.”
