Jean-Christophe Tellier

Jean-Christophe Tellier joined UCB in 2011. He became UCB’s Chief Executive Officer on January 1, 2015 after having successfully led UCB’s BioBrands and Solutions division as Executive Vice President. Jean-Christophe Tellier is an experienced global leader. He was trained as a Medical Doctor and specialized in rheumatology. He has built a distinguished 25-year career in the biopharmaceutical industry, taking on different global leadership responsibilities in different parts of the world. His patient-centric approach, his passion for science, combined with his strategic and operational skills, have allowed him to significantly contribute to UCB’s success in recent years. For Jean-Christophe “engaging the patient in our vision is the best way for our company to be successful in the long term. Having a holistic view of a patient, of his/her life in his/her environment is essential to ensure effective treatment”. Jean-Christophe also believes that “all healthcare players - physicians, payors, carers, industry and academia - should cooperate even more effectively and become stronger partners sharing a same goal: improving patient care”.
