AstraZeneca PLC on Wednesday said Non-Executive Director Bruce Burlington will retire from the board on August 31.
The FTSE 100-listed pharmaceutical said Burlington, who joined the board in 2010, will also step down as a member of the audit committee, the nomination and governance committee and from his role as chairman of the science committee.
Chairman Leif Johansson said: “Bruce has been an exemplary director who has made a significant contribution to the board’s work over many years. We have valued his insightful and frank participation as a board member, and chairman of the science committee during a period of innovation-led transformation at AstraZeneca.
“His diligence and commitment to the work of the audit committee and the nomination and governance committee should also be acknowledged.”
