Alex Gorsky is chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson, and chairman of the executive committee, the company's senior leadership team. He is the seventh person to serve as chair and CEO of Johnson & Johnson since it became a publicly traded company in 1944.
Gorsky began his Johnson & Johnson career as a sales representative with Janssen Pharmaceutica in 1988. Over the next three decades, he advanced through positions of increasing responsibility in sales, marketing, and management, culminating in being named CEO and Chairman in 2012.
Under Gorsky’s leadership, Johnson & Johnson has both upheld the company’s 133-year legacy of delivering solutions to the world’s most urgent unmet healthcare needs, and continued to redefine expectations when it comes to purpose-driven innovation and sustainable growth on behalf of all stakeholders.
During his tenure, Johnson & Johnson has become a leading global Pharmaceutical company as well as the industry’s number one investor in research and development. The Medical Device sector is at the forefront of applying cutting-edge technology to surgery, vision care, orthopedics, and interventional solutions. And the Consumer Health business continues to evolve its portfolio of both iconic heritage brands and innovative standouts in self-care and skin health.
Outside Johnson & Johnson, Gorsky’s influence has shaped both the healthcare landscape and the greater business community through his work as an active member of the Business Council and the Business Roundtable. A longtime advocate of diversity and inclusion and supporter of veterans’ issues, Gorsky currently sits on the board of directors of the Travis Manion Foundation and IBM.
Gorsky has been named one of the “100 Most Inspiring Leaders” by Pharma Voice. He is the Executive Sponsor of two Johnson & Johnson employee resource groups, the Women's Leadership Initiative and the Veteran's Leadership Council.
In 2014 Gorsky was given the Joseph Wharton Leadership Award and the CADCA Humanitarian of the Year Award, as well as an Honorary Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson University.
