Shire's Ornskov: The Modest Pediatrician With Fierce Corporate Ambition

Executive Summary

Since becoming CEO of Shire in April 2013, Flemming Ornskov has overseen around $50bn in M&A deals. He steered the company through the ultimately abortive takeover by AbbVie and walked away with a break fee of $1.6bn, going on to consummate instead Shire’s $32bn acquisition of Baxalta earlier this year. He spoke to Scrip about his vision and values.
