BARCELONA (Reuters) – Grifols said on Monday that its chief executive Thomas Glanzmann would become its new chief executive with immediate effect, ending the founding family’s executive leadership at a time of turmoil within the Spanish pharmaceutical group.
Glanzmann, who had served as vice chairman of the board since 2017, was named chairman in February after Steven F. Mayer resigned as Grifols chief executive for health and other personal reasons.
