Moncef Slaoui, Chairmman, GSK Vaccines, has been named to FORTUNE’s third annual list of “World’s Greatest Leaders.” Ranked at No. 29, Moncef is recognized for his groundbreaking work on Mosquirix™ Cervarix® and Synflorix® and the personal motivation behind his focus on under-researched diseases.
He is the only Healthcare executive on the list and in the company of the “great and the good,” many of these well-known like the Pope, Bono, Angela Merkel, Melinda Gates and John Oliver. But most on the list are new names like Moncef, and according to the editors, that was on purpose. As the editors put it: “It turns out the world is full of people you’ve never heard of who are rallying followers to make life better in ways you never imagined. As always, we cast a wide net, seeking outstanding leaders in all sectors of society worldwide. It isn’t enough to be accomplished, brilliant, or admirable. We recognize those who are inspiring others to act, to follow them on a worthy quest, and who have shown staying power.”
