In April 1986, he joined Roussel Uclaf (formerly France's second largest pharmaceutical company, until bought by Hoechst AG in 1997) as a salesman in Australia. In 1996 he became General Manager of Hoechst Marion Roussel in Australia, moving to Tokyo in April 1997.

In September 2018 he made headlines commenting on his pay of £9.4m in salary and bonuses,"The truth is I’m the lowest-paid CEO in the whole industry", he said. "It is annoying to some extent. But at the end of the day it is what it is".
