Raimon and Víctor Grifols will continue as Grifols advisors until May 31 after leaving executive positions

MADRID, 2 Abr. (EUROPA PRESS) -

Raimon Grifols and Víctor Grifols Deu, who have transferred their respective responsibilities as chief corporate officer and chief operating officer, respectively, to Nacho Abia from this Monday, April 1, they will remain as advisors to Grifols during a transition period that will end on May 31, the company reported this Tuesday in a press release.

For his part, Nacho Abia, who yesterday assumed the position of CEO of the blood products company, has indicated that his priorities include "continuing to accelerate growth, improving operational excellence and continuing to execute the company's deleveraging plan."

Likewise, Abia has stated that he will continue to reduce the "complexity of operations and improve clarity", while the new CEO will report to Thomas Glanzmann, who retains the role of executive president.

Grifols, which announced the changes in its corporate governance on February 5, explained that upon assuming his executive duties as CEO on Monday, Abia has also become executive director of the company's board of directors, leaving the category of other external ones that he had occupied since February 27 of this year.

The firm has also recalled that the renewal of Grifols' corporate governance began in 2022 at the initiative of Raimon Grifols and Víctor Grifols Deu, who together with the board of directors designed a gradual plan to separate the ownership of the company from its daily management.

Thus, as the company's post-pandemic recovery plan began to gain momentum, Grifols' board activated a series of "carefully sequenced" changes that culminated with the announcement of Nacho Abia as the company's CEO.
