Gri­fols fam­i­ly to step away fur­ther from op­er­a­tions; en­Gene CEO re­signs, cit­ing health rea­sons

→ Span­ish plas­ma gi­ant Gri­fols will in­sti­tute more big changes at the top — and the fam­i­ly ties have loos­ened con­sid­er­ably once again. Na­cho Abia takes over for Thomas Glanz­mann as CEO on April 1, while Rai­mon Gri­fols and Víc­tor Gri­fols Deu — the fa­ther-son duo who had been co-CEOs from 2017-23 — will no longer be chief cor­po­rate of­fi­cer and COO, re­spec­tive­ly. Glanz­mann had held the top spot since last May and will con­tin­ue as ex­ec­u­tive chair­man. The moves have been brew­ing since 2022, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease. “The Board await­ed ac­ti­va­tion un­til the com­pa­ny’s post-pan­dem­ic re­cov­ery had so­lid­i­fied,” it says. Both mem­bers of the fam­i­ly will keep their seats on the board as “pro­pri­etary di­rec­tors.”
