Prior to joining Perrigo, Mr. Khoury was responsible for running a $1.4 billion consumer products business at Kenvue (formerly a part of Johnson & Johnson) as Senior Vice President and General Manager of their skin care portfolio, including brand leadership responsibilities for Neutrogena®, Neostrata®, Clean and Clear®, and Rogaine®. Prior to this role, Khoury led Kenvue's consumer brands in Europe. Before his time at Kenvue, Mr. Khoury spent 13 years at L'Oréal, where he held several leadership roles in the consumer space that included stints in growing pan-European line extensions of leading brands.

"I am thrilled to join Perrigo and contribute to the Company's increasing success in the self-care industry," said Mr. Khoury. "Perrigo has a strong reputation for delivering high-quality consumer products, and I am excited to work with the talented team, especially Svend, to further strengthen the Company's well-known European brand presence. Together, we will continue to provide innovative solutions that improve the health and well-being of consumers around the world."

During his seven-year tenure, Mr. Andersen played a pivotal role in the success of the CSCI business, focusing the portfolio by significantly reducing the number of SKUs, concentrating business efforts on innovation and brand extensions, and making significant contributions to Perrigo's overall growth and development. His leadership, brand management and overall commitment have CSCI well-positioned for continued success.

"I feel very privileged to have led such a diverse, talented and passionate team, which I am truly going to miss. It has been an incredible journey with Perrigo, and I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished together," commented Mr. Andersen. "I have full confidence that Roberto is the right leader to advance the success of CSCI and all of Perrigo, and I wish him and the team the very best for the future."

Perrigo President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Lockwood-Taylor commented, "On behalf of the Board of Directors, the management team and the more than 9,000 Perrigo colleagues worldwide, I want to express our gratitude to Svend for his invaluable contributions and dedication to the growth and success of the organization. His leadership and commitment have helped position CSCI and Perrigo as a global leader in self-care and I congratulate him on his well-earned retirement."

Lockwood-Taylor concluded, "We are delighted to welcome Roberto to Perrigo, and I am confident that his fresh perspectives and deep consumer insights will focus the CSCI business on scale brands, while delighting consumers with winning innovation. We are also thrilled to have him as part of the leadership team as we continue on our journey to consumerize, simplify and scale One Perrigo."
