Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced the appointment of
Jonathan Biller as Executive Vice President and General Counsel
effective July 3, 2018. Mr. Biller will be responsible for global legal
strategy and will serve on the company’s Executive Committee.

Mr. Biller will succeed Gerald F. Masoudi, Celgene’s Executive Vice

to return to Washington, D.C. with his family and assume the role of
Chief Legal Officer with a private company outside of the
biopharmaceutical industry.

“Jonathan has been an integral part of Celgene’s senior management team
for the last seven years. He has led our capital allocation strategy and
provided industry-wide leadership on U.S. corporate tax reform. His
extensive legal experience and deep understanding of Celgene enable him
to immediately strengthen our leadership team as General Counsel,” said
Mark J. Alles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Celgene
Corporation. “Jerry has made many important contributions to Celgene,
and we wish him and his family all the best.”

Mr. Biller joined Celgene in 2011 and was most recently Senior Vice
President, Tax and Treasury and served as Celgene’s Treasurer. He joined
Celgene from Bunge Limited, a publicly traded agriculture and food
company, where he was General Counsel, Chief Tax Officer and Secretary
from 2008 to 2011. In this role, he managed a global legal team of more
than 100 professionals. Prior to Bunge, Mr. Biller held roles of
increasing responsibility at Alcon, Inc. He began his legal career at
Hopkins & Sutter before rising to the level of partner and served as a
partner at Foley & Lardner after the firms merged. Mr. Biller holds a
J.D. from Yale Law School and a B.A. from Brown University.
