For the past two years, I have witnessed every day the unwavering commitment of our employees in France to serving patients around the world. Behind each of our successes, from the launch of Beyfortus against RSV, to the environmental transition of our industrial sites, to the mobilization of thousands of employees in support of our partnership with Paris 2024, we had the Corporate Affairs teams at our side. It is with the strength of these successes in mind that I take on these new responsibilities as we continue to modernize Sanofi and pursue our ambition to become an immunology powerhouse.”
