Mr. Dickinson received his bachelor’s degree in molecular, cellular and developmental biology from the University of Colorado and his law degree from Loyola University Chicago.
“Andy has brought to Gilead vision, creativity and leadership, fundamentally changing the way that we assess and execute acquisitions and partnerships as an organization,” said John F. Milligan, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gilead. “His deep understanding of the industry has helped guide Gilead’s strategy and will be critical to our future success.”
Dr. Silverstein will remain at Gilead through the end of August, working with Mr. Dickinson and other leaders to transition his duties.
“I’m grateful to Marty for his exceptional work to strengthen Gilead’s strategic planning and vision, and ensure that we are well-positioned for future growth, as we seek to bring the next generation of medicines forward for patients with unmet medical needs,” said Dr. Milligan. “We understand his decision to eliminate the bicoastal schedule he has kept since joining Gilead and be closer to his family, and wish him the very best in the next phase of his career.”
