LEO Management

LEO Pharma's organisation is functional in structure allowing the management team to stay close to research and development, product supply projects and the markets. This provides great opportunities for cross-functional collaboration throughout the entire company.

We strive for openness between staff, partners and customers, and we see business as a continuous dialogue leading to win-win situations for all.

LEO management is committed to the five fundamental LEO values:


“In LEO Pharma, we work with such joy and dedication that it’s impossible not to feel confident about the future. Together – as LEO People – we have the best basis for securing our common future: a passion for the company and a passion for developing competitive products. I am proud of LEO Pharma and I am proud to work among so many capable and dedicated people.” Gitte P. Aabo, CEO.


“We must develop safe, efficacious and competitive drugs. If you forget the last part – competitive – you will be out of business.” Lars Olsen, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing.


“Integrity is doing the right thing. When you hold a LEO Pharma product in your hand, you should feel certain that the product has the right quality and the promised effect!” Gitte P. Aabo, CEO.


“Sometimes making fast manoeuvres as we do at LEO Pharma is only possible because we are adaptable and have incredibly flexible employees.” John Mehlbye, Executive Vice President, Global Product Supply


“Innovation is finding new and better ways of doing things. Innovation is included in the LEO Fundamentals partly to capture the original LEO spirit, partly because innovation is crucial to fulfil the LEO mission: to generate improved treatment options. ” Lars Olsen Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing
