Following Shire’s acquisition of Baxalta in 2016, Vincent Dunne is currently leading the Technical Operations integration of the legacy companies. As the Technical Operations of Baxalta are significantly larger than that of legacy Shire, the integration is very complex. The acquisition has also led to a fundamental shift of focus for Shire from mainly outsourcing its operations to an organisation with a large internal vertical manufacturing footprint. The integration effort is focusing on combining and optimizing the processes and systems for the new entity. Since joining Shire, Vincent has held a number of leadership positions in strategy and supply chain. Vincent has over 20 years’ experience in lifesciences, and prior to joining Shire he held positions in Merck KgAA, Mylan, and Welcome.
