Mylan Nominates JoEllen Lyons Dillon for Election to Board of Directors

C.B. (Sonny) Todd to become Director Emeritus

PITTSBURGH, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that its Board of Directors has nominated JoEllen Lyons Dillon as a candidate for election to Mylan's Board at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on April 11, 2014. If elected, Dillon will replace C.B. (Sonny) Todd, who will become Director Emeritus effective April 12, 2014 and was not nominated for reelection at the 2014 Annual Meeting. If Mylan's shareholders elect all candidates nominated by the Board at the 2014 Annual Meeting, including Dillon, Mylan's Board will consist of 13 directors, 10 of whom will be independent and 4 of whom will be women.

Dillon currently serves as chief legal officer and corporate secretary of The ExOne Company, a global provider of three-dimensional printing machines. Prior to that, Dillon was a partner at law firms Reed Smith LLP and Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC, advising public companies and their boards on matters including mergers and acquisitions, securities law and corporate governance. She is the former Chair, and currently serves as the Audit Committee Chair, of the Allegheny District chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Mylan Executive Chairman Robert J. Coury commented: "The election of JoEllen to the Board of Directors would continue our focus on strengthening and enhancing Mylan's Board. JoEllen would bring to the Board a wealth of demonstrated public-company legal expertise, outstanding judgment and sound leadership. If shareholders elect her at our Annual Meeting next month, I look forward to her anticipated contributions to the Company."

Dillon said, "I have long followed Mylan and its transformation into the global industry leader it is today. This is a very exciting time to be on Mylan's Board, given the unique global platform the Company has built, the clear strategy it has set forth, and the significant opportunities it has cultivated to achieve its growth targets. I am honored to be nominated to have the opportunity to work alongside this dedicated group of directors and Mylan's highly talented management team, and I look forward to contributing to Mylan's continued evolution if elected."

Coury continued: "On behalf of the entire Board, I want to thank Sonny for his numerous contributions and extraordinary commitment to Mylan and the Board over the course of nearly 45 years. In addition to serving as a director for more than 20 years, Sonny had a distinguished career as a Mylan executive and, among many accomplishments, was instrumental to the Company's development as a global provider of affordable, high quality pharmaceutical products. We are profoundly grateful to Sonny for his leadership, expertise and camaraderie for more than four decades."

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged.

Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
