The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations has followed up its appointment of Thomas Cueni as Director General by sourcing Dr Fumie Griego for the role of Assistant Director General.

Prior to this, she worked at PhRMA as Vice President of International Affairs for five years. She also had experience within the White House, working as a Senior Economist in the Office of Management and Budget – providing advice to both the Bush and Obama regimes on health policy issues.
