The Power List 2016

Brent Saunders

CEO, Allergan

Saunders has significant healthcare industry expertise, and is a previous CEO of Bausch + Lomb, he has also held a number of leadership positions at Schering-Plough and was named head of integration for the company’s merger with Merck & Co. Saunders’ dealmaking is the stuff of legend: he then went on to lead Actavis’ takeover of Allergan, and as CEO of the new entity (dubbed Allergan), Saunders was about to pull off the world’s largest-ever inversion deal: Dublin-based Allergan buying the much larger, New York-based Pfizer, but that deal is now off – as the US government changed the tax laws on inversions.
