Executive Summary

Sanofi-Aventisis to make single-digit percentage cuts to its US sales force, the company has confirmed to Scrip. The France-based pharma giant currently has around 6,500 reps in the US, meaning that up to 650 employees could be cut. Sanofi-Aventis's new CEO Chris Viebacher took up his position at the beginning of this month but the company said that the cuts were part of a process that had been decided months before he joined. The company reduced its sales force by 817 and the number of staff at its headquarters in France by 110 in October (ScripOnline, October 3rd, 2008).
