Arnold Koger has joined Novartis as Head of Legal.
As part of Koger’s role, he will be responsible for Antitrust, Competition, Compiance, Contracts, Ethics, Labour, as well as heading the Novartis Technical Operations Austria legal team based in Kundl on providing strategic legal support to one of the company’s largest production sites.
Koger started his career as an Associate at Cerha Hempel. After that, he worked as a Legal Counsel at Red Bull, as well as a General Counsel and Member of the Executive Committee for L’Oreal Austria, before joining Novartis.
Koger told CEE In-House Matters: “It seems like the right time and challenge to join Sandoz and Novartis in Austria, as the company just committed to penicillin API production in Europe, specifically on the Austrian sites for the next 10 years, ensuring independence in those challenging times."
