Pfizer’s executive vice president and president of global supply, Anthony J. Maddaluna, is retiring from the pharma giant after more than 41 years with the company.

Maddaluna first started with Pfizer in 1975 and worked his way up the ranks, holding a number of key positions during his career. He was named president of global supply in 2011, the company said.

“I have had the privilege of working with Tony during much of his career, and he has been a valuable partner to me,” Ian Read, Pfizer’s chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “Tony has continually demonstrated a steadfast commitment to Pfizer and our mission.”
