Zoetis Inc. said May 11 it made some key leadership changes, whereby Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Glenn David will be executive vice president and group president, overseeing International Operations and other business units, and Wetteny Joseph will join the Parsippany-based company as executive vice president and CFO, reporting to Chief Executive Officer Kristin Peck.
Both appointments are effective June 1, 2021.
“Glenn’s record of success at Zoetis, plus his deep knowledge of our operations and the animal health industry, make him the ideal leader to drive Zoetis’ next phase of global growth in international markets, aquaculture, biodevices and pet insurance,” said Peck in a prepared statement.
As group president, David will oversee Zoetis’ international operations, including China and Brazil–two of the company’s largest and fastest-growing markets. He will also be responsible for the company’s aquaculture business (PHARMAQ), Global BioDevices, and Pumpkin Pet Insurance.
In a company press release, Zoetis said that since becoming CFO in 2016, David has supported the company’s ability to consistently grow revenue faster than the market and grow adjusted net income faster than revenue. Earlier in his career, he served as senior vice president of finance operations for Zoetis during its Initial Public Offering in 2013. Before the Zoetis IPO, David served in various financial roles at Pfizer, including vice president of global finance for Pfizer Animal Health and vice president of finance for the U.S. Primary Care franchise.
As CFO, Joseph will assume responsibility for the oversight of the company’s financial management, planning, and business development group. For the last 13 years, Joseph served as CFO of Catalent where he proved to have valuable financial expertise and deep experience in the health care industry. During his career, he worked across diverse and complex businesses, leading finance functions and business units, and managing relationships with stakeholders from customers to investors.
Before joining Catalent, Joseph held a variety of senior financial positions at the industrial distribution company HD Supply including CFO for its $1.2 billion plumbing and HVAC business unit. He also served as corporatecontroller at Hughes Supply, a Fortune 500, NYSE-listed company that was acquired by Home Depot and became part of HD Supply. In his early career, Joseph spent six years at PricewaterhouseCoopers as an auditor and strategic financial advisor across a variety of industries.
