Executive Vice President Generic Activities
Having studied pharmacy, Pascal Brière started his career in Belgium in a major French pharmaceutical group before he set up Qualimed, one of the first generic medicine laboratories in France.
After joining the Servier Group in 1996, he set up Biogaran to further expand the availability of generic medicines in France and became President of the laboratory.
In 2020, the Servier Group decided to bring together its generic activities under a single governance structure, headed by Pascal Brière.
He was consequently appointed Executive Vice President Generic Activities – a role that covers Biogaran, Egis in central and Eastern Europe, Pharlab in Brazil and Swipha in Nigeria.
Moreover, Pascal Brière co-founded the GEMME (Génériques Même Médicaments) association in 2002, where he served as President between 2006 and 2015. It was as Vice President of Economic Affairs at GEMME that he played an active role in driving progress in the regulation of biosimilar medicines in 2021.
