Ready for anticipated regulatory approval and launch of Iclusig® in Europe this year.

ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the appointment of Jonathan E. Dickinson to the position of General Manager, ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (Europe), Sàrl. Mr. Dickinson is a seasoned commercial executive bringing more than 20 years of pharmaceutical-industry experience to ARIAD, with special emphasis on global and pan-European leadership of several important cancer medicines. Mr. Dickinson is responsible for leading ARIAD’s European commercialization initiatives -- focused first on the anticipated European approval and launch of Iclusig® (ponatinib) in the third quarter of 2013 and subsequently on ARIAD’s other cancer medicines in development.

Mr. Dickinson joined ARIAD from Bristol-Myers Squibb, where he served for the past three years as the European brand lead for ipilimumab, responsible for the product’s European launch and commercialization in 29 countries. Previously, during his 13-year tenure at Hoffmann-La Roche, Mr. Dickinson held several key leadership positions, including lifecycle leader for capecitabine, where he managed global marketing, clinical development, regulatory affairs and manufacturing activities for the brand. At Roche, he had assignments both in the U.S. and Switzerland that included leadership roles of Roche’s three leading oncology medicines -- trastuzumab, rituximab, and capecitabine. Mr. Dickinson began his career at Novartis, where he held commercial roles in its oncology and endocrinology businesses, including medical sales, product manager and business director in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Dickinson received his B.Sc. degree in Genetics and his M.B.A. degree from the University of Nottingham. He is based at ARIAD’s European headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland and reports to Marty J. Duvall, senior vice president, commercial operations of ARIAD.

“Jonathan is a proven leader with broad commercial and general management experience promoting several of the most highly regarded oncology medicines available today,” stated Harvey J. Berger, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of ARIAD. “His knowledge of the evolving European market and his success in commercializing important cancer medicines throughout Europe and globally will serve us well as we prepare for anticipated approval and commercialization of Iclusig in the EU this year.”
