M2 PHARMA-July 16, 2019-Orphazyme appoints new CEO


Orphazyme A/S (CPH:ORPHA.CO), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing treatments for patients living with rare diseases, announced on Monday the appointment of Kim Stratton as the new CEO, effective 1 October 2019. Stratton succeeds Anders Hinsby.

According to Orphazyme, as it enters a new chapter in its development, from being an entrepreneurial R&D company to a company with significant growth aspirations, an emerging late-stage pipeline and moving into the pre-commercial phase, Hinsby had initiated discussions with the board of directors to resign from his position as CEO. Hinsby had co-founded Orphazyme ten years ago and has led its successful evolution. Reportedly, Hinsby will remain with the company through the transition period.

Stratton, who has over 25 years of global commercial experience from biopharmaceuticals, most recently was with Shire Pharmaceuticals, where she served as head International Commercial for Shire's Specialty and Rare Diseases portfolio.

Before Shire, she spent nearly 15 years at Novartis in a number of senior management roles, including global product development, commercial, marketing, general manager and various global corporate functions, including government and external affairs.
