We are a global, science-led biopharmaceutical business and our innovative medicines are used by millions of patients worldwide.
Together, we can be confident that by leading in science, we will transform the lives of patients around the world
Our purpose and values help explain why we exist, what we hope to accomplish, the behaviours we value, how we will achieve our goals, and the promise of our brand to our stakeholders.
We push the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines. Our purpose underpins everything we do. It gives us a reason to come to work every day. It reminds us why we exist as a company. It helps us deliver benefits to patients and create value for shareholders. It also sets the context for our employees’ activities and the roles of our teams, partners and other collaborators.
We follow the science. We put patients first.
We play to win. We do the right thing.
We are entrepreneurial.
Our values determine how we work together and the behaviours that are integral to our drive for success. Our values guide our decision making, define our beliefs and foster a strong culture.
Our leadership, which includes our Board of Directors and Senior Executive Team, is accountable to our shareholders for the responsible conduct of the business and our long-term success. It also represents the interests of all our stakeholders in ensuring that we deliver for patients by putting science at the heart of everything we do.
Our Directors are collectively responsible for the success of Tangent Pharma. In addition, the Non-Executive Directors are responsible for exercising independent and objective judgement and for scrutinising and challenging management. The Board is responsible for setting our strategy and policies, oversight of risk and corporate governance and monitoring progress towards meeting our annual plans. It is accountable to our shareholders for the proper conduct of the business and our long-term success and represents the interests of all stakeholders. The Board has delegated some of its powers to four principal committees and the CEO.
Senior Executive Team
In addition to the Board of Directors, our Senior Executive Team, or SET, is the body through which our Chief Executive Officer (CEO) exercises the authority delegated to him by the Board. Our CEO leads the SET and has executive responsibility for the management, development and performance of the business. The Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and SET also take the lead in developing our strategy for review, constructive challenge and approval by the Board as part of our annual strategy review process.
We believe personalised healthcare is the future of medicine; it allows us to use the latest diagnostic science to target medicines to patients most likely to benefit.
