Pharma boss Man of the Year

January 4, 2017

Erik Bogsch, the CEO of the Hungarian pharmaceutical giant Gedeon Richter, has been chosen as the 2016 'Man of the Year' in Hungary by the business weekly Figyelõ that recognizes positive examples to be followed morally and financially.

The choice was not easy: at
the Figyelõ TOP200 gala held last fall with the participation of over 400
business decision-makers, more than 150 nominated a candidate for the ‘Man of the
Year’ award. Of the ten most voted candidates, it was the editorial board of
the magazine that chose the leader most worthy of the title.

The weekly magazine
does not only select from among business people, as many exceptional achievements
could be found last year also in scientific, cultural and sports life.

The business magazine wanted
to recognize that an industry and a company, preserving decades of tradition, wishes
to keep its research and development activities in domestic centers in one of
the most future-oriented industrial segments, the pharmaceutical industry.

2016, Gedeon Richter (under the leadership of Erik Bogsch), achieved the level
that enabled it to purchase – with the accumulation of its own values – a foreign
(in this case, Swiss) company that well matches its profile. The other
achievement that the weekly emphasized is that Gedeon Richter has been able to
break into the very strict and critical US market with its proprietary
pharmaceutical product, the cariprazine.
