Joaquin Duato

Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee of Johnson & Johnson

Joaquin Duato is a globally experienced, values-driven health care business leader and currently Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee of Johnson & Johnson, the world’s premier health care company. Joaquin is responsible for the Company’s Pharmaceuticals and Consumer sectors, along with Supply Chain, Technology and the Health & Wellness groups. He is a respected industry leader and past Chairman of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.

As a member of the company for more than 30 years, Joaquin played an instrumental role in leading the turnaround of Johnson & Johnson’s Pharmaceuticals sector. Joaquin was named Company Group Chairman of the Americas in 2009. He then continued leading the global transformation upon his appointment to his role as Executive Vice President and Worldwide Chairman, Pharmaceuticals in 2011. During that time, the sector grew into what is today the third-largest innovative pharmaceutical company globally.

More recently in his role as Vice Chairman, Joaquin provides strategic direction for the sectors and functions he oversees. He helped guide the transformation of Johnson & Johnson’s Consumer Health sector, under which the business has renewed its focus on Self-Care and Skin Health brands that are rooted in science and endorsed by professionals. Additionally, Joaquin is championing the use of new technologies across Johnson & Johnson so the company can continue leading in a digital world, with a focus on the application of Data Science, Intelligent Automation and other digital technologies.

As a dual citizen of Spain and the United States with extensive experience living and working on-the-ground on multiple continents, Joaquin brings a unique international perspective to his work. His global experience has given him an appreciation for the value of diversity of thought and opinions, which he brings to bear externally as a UNICEF USA Board Member, Tsinghua University School of Pharmaceutical Sciences Advisory Board Member and Hess Corporation Board Member, and internally as the Executive Sponsor of the African Ancestry Leadership Council. His commitment to nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion was recognized by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) when he was named 2017 Honorable Mentor. Joaquin has an undergraduate degree in economics and business, a Master of Business Administration degree from ESADE Business School in Barcelona and a Master of International Management degree from Thunderbird in Phoenix, Arizona.
