Teva has nominated Jean-Michel Halfon to the board. He is a pharmaceutical industry executive with over 35 years of global pharmaceutical industry experience, including in emerging markets. The changes will reduce Teva’s board by a net two members, to 13.

Late last year, Teva shareholder Benny Landa led a campaign to reduce the size of Teva’s board of directors. Teva chairman Dr. Phillip Frost agreed, and in January announced plans to reduce the board and to appoint new directors with global pharmaceutical experience.

Under Teva’s current articles of incorporation, a super-majority of 85% of shareholders are needed to approve the replacement of a director.

In his letter today summoning shareholders to the general meeting, Frost also announced his pending resignation, saying, “Finally, with the progress we have made, and continue to make, at Teva, I have advised the coard that I believe it will be appropriate for me to step down as chairman approximately by the end of this year.”
