"Under his leadership, Allergan's European headquarters has been relocated to the United Kingdom and this will eventually result in hundreds of high-quality new jobs, supporting the British government's aim of the promotion of our bio-pharma industry. He has also been tireless in advocating broader business links between Britain and California."
