C-Suite Transitions – GSK Appoints Burberry’s Julie Brown As CFO

GSK plc (GSK)

Formerly known as GlaxoSmithKline, GSK plc is a multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology company headquartered in Brentford, UK.

On September 26, 2022, GSK announced that Iain Mackay, the company’s Chief Financial Officer will be stepping down as CFO and as an Executive Director of the Board in May 2023. Mackay had announced his retirement after GSK spun off its consumer health business, Haleon, in July. He held a number of jobs at Price Waterhouse, General Electric, and Schlumberger Dowell in addition to his eight years as global finance director at HSBC. After serving as GSK’s finance chief for nearly four years, Mackay, 60, will retire next year.

GSK appointed fashion brand Burberry’s Julie Brown to be its first female Chief Financial Officer. Brown’s hiring establishes a rare, all-female senior management team with Emma Walmsley serving as GSK’s CEO. Julie Brown served as CFO of Smith & Nephew before joining Burberry, and also worked for 25 years at AstraZeneca and held a role as non-executive director for Switzerland’s Roche Holding AG.
