During her career she has also worked as Global Brand and Regional Commercial Director at Abbott Pharmaceuticals and Divisional Head, Strategy & Operations (Ireland & UK Affiliate) for Eli Lilly.
Peter Allen, Chairman of Clinigen, said: "One area of focus for Clinigen over the past 12 months has been to bring new expertise onto the Board from industry and from other company boards. We are fortunate with Sharon that she has an equal measure of both. She has worked for multinational companies in the US and Europe, both in active executive positions as well as senior advisory on ethics and compliance, portfolio strategy and global crisis management.
