Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health Wednesday announced the appointment of Randolph Legg as its U.S. President. 

He succeeds Everett Hoekstra, who retired in December. 

Legg will remain head of the Company’s U.S. commercial business while serving as president. 

Legg held various commercial leadership roles in Boehringer Ingelheim’s Human Pharmaceutical division before moving to its Animal Health business in 2019 to lead the U.S. Pets Commercial team. 

He is based at the U.S. headquarters of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health in Duluth, Georgia. 

Hoekstra retired after holding a variety of leadership roles at Boehringer Ingelheim. 

As president of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health in the U.S. for the last two years, he oversaw the final integration activities after Boehringer Ingelheim acquired Merial in 2017 to become the world’s second-largest animal health company. 

Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health also is transitioning a key global manufacturing role from its global headquarters in Ingelheim, Germany, to the United States.
