BeiGene

Chief Privacy Officer

I’m a privacy executive with a long experience on implementing privacy programs in multinationals operating in the pharmaceutical, IT and financial sectors. Currently, I'm the Chief Privacy Officer of BeiGene, a global biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing drugs for the treatment of cancer. Before joining BeiGene, I was the Chief Privacy Officer of two other major multinationals, Willis Towers Watson and HCL Technologies, and I also worked as a privacy legal counsel at IBM, the European Medicines Agency and Celgene.



On Jan 2022, I was appointed as a member of the UK’s International Data Transfers Expert Council, a group of 20 global leading academics and digital industry figures who will inform the UK government on the country cross-border data protection strategy. I also serve as a member of the IAPP Research Advisory Board and I am a co-author of the book “Privacy Program Management” used as the main training material for all the IAPP CIPP/M certifications.



In 2020, I was listed as a ‘Global Top 100 Data Visionaries: Leaders who are vividly innovating with analytics without compromising on trust and privacy’, mostly because of my work as a Consultative Expert Member on Digital Ethics/Artificial Intelligence at the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA).
