Schering-Plough Announces Transition of Animal Health Leadership

US Schering-Plough Corporation has announced the transition of leadership of its Animal Health unit from Ruurd Stolp, D.V.M., Ph.D., to Raul E. Kohan, who was previously the Deputy Head of the Animal Health unit.

In his role as senior vice president and president, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, Kohan will continue reporting to Fred Hassan, chairman and chief executive officer.

In this role, Kohan is responsible for overseeing the company's worldwide animal health business, which includes a range of pharmaceuticals, vaccines and services for food-producing and companion animals. The role is based in Boxmeer, the Netherlands, where the Animal Health unit is headquartered.

Kohan joined Schering-Plough in 1984 and has since held positions of increasing responsibility. He recently served as Deputy Head of Animal Health and senior vice president, Corporate Excellence and Administrative Services for Schering-Plough Corporation. Previously, Kohan's responsibilities included overseeing the company's Global Specialty Operations group, which comprised Animal Health and Consumer Health Care for Schering-Plough.

Kohan graduated from the General San Martin Military Academy, Argentina, and holds an M.B.A. degree in economics from the University of Buenos Aires.

Stolp will transition responsibilities to Kohan over the next several months. During his 21 years with Intervet, Stolp held various roles of increasing responsibility within the Animal Health unit. Previously, Stolp was president of Intervet International, a position he held since 2002.

"Ruurd and Raul played critical leadership roles in our successful combination of Organon BioSciences with Schering-Plough over the past year," said Hassan. "I thank Ruurd for his leadership, guidance and important contributions bringing our two companies together. Raul and I look forward to working with him in an advisory capacity."
