JACKSONVILLE, Fla. AND SANTA ANA, Calif. – May 3, 2022 – Johnson & Johnson Vision*, a global leader in eye health and part of Johnson & Johnson MedTech**, today announced the appointment of Peter Menziuso as Company Group Chairman.
Mr. Menziuso now leads the full Johnson & Johnson Vision portfolio, which offers solutions designed to provide healthy sight for life. This includes world-leading brands such as ACUVUE® contact lenses, TECNIS® family of intraocular lenses, TearScience® LipiFlow®, and much more. Johnson & Johnson Vision generates nearly $5 billion in annual sales, employs more than 10,000 purpose-driven, high-performing individuals, and improves the lives of more than 52 million people each year.
“Peter’s breadth of experience and passion for eye health position him well to lead J&J Vision,” said Ashley McEvoy, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Chairman, Johnson & Johnson MedTech. “Peter has built a reputation as a purpose-driven, highly successful global leader, with a deep focus on innovation in service of healthcare professionals and patients.”
Throughout his 30+ year career at Johnson & Johnson, Mr. Menziuso has accelerated businesses to high growth by articulating a compelling vision and strategy, building high-performing teams, and strengthening accountability. Mr. Menziuso has spent half of his career in roles outside of the U.S. and has deep experience across the healthcare industry – spanning pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical devices in a variety of therapeutic areas.
A substantial part of Mr. Menziuso’s experience has been based in eye health. Prior to his appointment as Company Group Chairman, he was Worldwide President for the company’s Vision Care division. In this role, he has created and raised standards of eye care around the world and shaped a portfolio of meaningful solutions to deliver healthy sight for life. He also previously served as U.S. President for Vision Care, where he built a deep connection and appreciation of the eye health industry.
“We largely intuit life through sight—it’s how we learn, engage, connect. Across my career with Johnson & Johnson, what has fueled me has been the transformational effect we have on people’s lives on such a large scale—that focus continues,” said Mr. Menziuso. “As the only eye care company with health at its core as part of Johnson & Johnson, and with a heritage of innovation ‘firsts’, we have the unique opportunity to not just imagine what the future of eye health looks like, but to redefine it.“
Mr. Menziuso has also served as President, North America, Cardiovascular & Metabolism, Janssen, where he helped transform the $3+ billion business to a period of dynamic growth.
