BMS is on a steep trajectory of growth and transformation following the acquisition of Celgene

Mily joins BMS as it begins the new decade as a different organization than it was in 2019. The company’s rebranding campaign reflects this. Last year BMS acquired Celgene Corporation for $72 billion.

Increasing sales and product development momentum while reducing the expense

Mily and BMS won’t be wasting any time getting better acquainted. BMS and its Celgene addition are a formidable pool of clinical and commercial talent with great potential for success. It’s fitting someone of Mily’s distinguished leadership experience is joining BMS during National Women’s History Month to chart a winning course moving forward.
