Robert J. Coury is the executive chairman of Mylan's board of directors. Under his leadership, Mylan has been transformed into one of the largest generics and specialty pharmaceutical companies in the world, serving customers in approximately 150 countries and territories.
Coury was elected to Mylan's board of directors in February 2002, having served since 1995 as a strategic advisor to the company. He became the board's vice chairman shortly after his election and was made CEO of the company in September of that same year, a post he held through 2011.
In 2007, Mylan, under Coury's leadership, went from a U.S. focused company, to a global powerhouse. At the time, Mylan was the third largest generics manufacturer in the U.S. By purchasing India-based Matrix Laboratories, a major producer of active pharmaceutical ingredients, and acquiring the generics business of Europe-based Merck KGaA, Mylan catapulted to the No. 3 position in the industry worldwide. The acquisition of the former "Merck Generics" gave the company unprecedented scale in many critical areas, including an extensive and unique international commercial footprint.
Prior to these game-changing acquisitions, from 2002-2007, Coury helped further position Mylan to prosper long-term in a consolidating industry marked by increasing competition and growing demand worldwide for high quality, affordable pharmaceuticals. During this pre-globalization period, the company more than doubled its manufacturing capacity; expanded investment in research and development; and maintained Mylan's strong industry leadership on key issues, working with policymakers to help create a more level playing field for producers of generic drugs.
Before Mylan, Coury was the principal of Coury Consulting, a boutique business advisory firm he formed in 1989, and The Coury Financial Group, a successful financial and estate planning firm. Coury earned a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh.
Heather Bresch is chief executive officer of Mylan, one of the largest generics and specialty pharmaceutical companies in the world. She also serves on the company’s board of directors.
Mylan’s mission is to provide the world’s 7 billion people access to high quality medicine. Over the course of her 20-year career at the company, Bresch has been a champion of initiatives and policy changes aimed at removing barriers that hinder patient access to high quality medicine. She has testified before the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, among other institutions, on issued related to access to medicine.
Some of Bresch’s key policy priorities include working to ensure that everyone living with HIV/AIDS has access to treatment and advocating for treatment soon after diagnosis to ensure better health outcomes, reduce HIV transmissions and create long-term cost savings. As part of this effort, Bresch has worked to call attention to access issues in developing countries for patients in need of antiretroviral (ARV) treatment for HIV/AIDS. Further, she has helped position Mylan as a leader in the development and manufacture of ARVs. Today, approximately one out of three people in the developing world being treated for HIV/AIDS depends on a Mylan ARV product.
In other efforts to drive access to medicine, Bresch is actively advocating for the implementation of a viable abbreviated approval pathway for safe and effective generic versions of biologic drugs to provide patients with access to lower-cost versions of life-saving products. She also is working to increase generic drug utilization around the world, particularly in markets where generic utilization rates remain relatively low.
In addition, Bresch is passionate about increasing awareness of food allergies, which can sometimes lead to a life-threatening allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis. She is active in increasing awareness of the risk, symptoms of anaphylaxis, encouraging preparedness to respond when anaphylaxis occurs, and having immediate access to Epinephrine auto-injectors, as Epinephrine is considered the first-line treatment for anaphylaxis.
Bresch also has been a leading advocate for one quality standard for all drugs sold in the U.S. She was instrumental the development of the Generic Drug User Fee Act and advocated for changes to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938 to arm the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with the resources and authority to regularly inspect U.S. and foreign plants at the same rate, both of which were included in the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA).
Earlier in her career, Bresch played a vital role in the passage of the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act, a congressional revision to the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, which helped to ensure consumer access to affordable pharmaceuticals.
Throughout her career with Mylan, Bresch has held roles of increasing responsibility in more than 15 functional areas. Prior to becoming CEO, Bresch served as Mylan’s president, where she was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company. Before that, she served as Mylan’s chief operating officer and chief integration officer, leading the successful integration of two transformational and game-changing international acquisitions – Matrix Laboratories and Merck KGaA’s generics business.
