Pfizer Leadership and Structure
Pfizer's Executive Leadership Team is the company's senior-most leadership and decision-making management body. It brings together our top leaders to focus on major financial, strategic and operational decisions for the company.
Worldwide Research and Development at Pfizer combines research and technology units that have deep disease area expertise and cutting-edge science and platforms with an efficient R&D operating model, to discover and develop innovative therapeutic programs in small molecules and biotherapeutics, including vaccines.
We manage our operations through five operating segments - Primary Care; Specialty Care and Oncology; Established Products and Emerging Markets; Animal Health; and Consumer Healthcare. Each of these segments is led by an executive with clear accountability for results - from product development following proof of concept to providing access to patients and through to the end of the product's life cycle. These segments are provided with the resources to pursue attractive growth opportunities and to deliver benefits to all who rely on us around the world.
With this structure, we are able to rapidly capitalize on opportunities to advance our business by increasing support for successful new medicines, forging partnerships with key customers, entering into co-promotion and licensing agreements, investing in new technologies to add value to our core product offerings, and acquiring new products and services from outside the company.
