Dr Antonio Payano - Chief Executive Officer for Bayer UK & Ireland and Country Division Head for Pharmaceuticals UK & Ireland

In this time, he has been elected as Chair of the European Medicines Group and as Board Member of the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce. 

Antonio has had a succession of local, regional and global roles with Bayer over the past 25 years. Before coming to the UK, he was Head of Region Eastern Europe/Middle East and Head of Global Healthcare Programs where he had a lead role in negotiations for PhRMA Middle East and Africa in several countries throughout the region and led cross-industry delegations with governments and non-profit foundations in lower-middle-income countries.

Bayer’s portfolio and future pipeline extends across primary and secondary care, including specialised commissioning products, so Antonio is well attuned to many of the issues faced by others along the development, access and adoption pathway.

Away from work, Antonio lives in London and is married with two daughters.
