Alex Gorsky Biography and Net Worth

Alex Gorsky is Executive Chairman of Johnson & Johnson, and one of just seven leaders to have served in the dual role of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer since the company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1944.

Alex began his Johnson & Johnson career as a sales representative with Janssen Pharmaceutica in 1988. Over the next three decades, he advanced through positions of increasing responsibility in sales, marketing, and management, culminating in being named CEO and Chairman in 2012.

Under his leadership, Johnson & Johnson became an industry leader in areas including oncology, immunology, and digital surgery, and reimagined how one of the world’s most iconic companies could meet the healthcare needs of families around the globe. During Alex’s tenure, record levels of R&D investment, including $14.7 billion in 2021 alone, as well as hundreds of acquisitions and partnerships contributed to significant growth across its Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical, and Consumer Health sectors. As part of Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to serving more than a billion people each day, Alex also oversaw significant breakthroughs in public health, including the successful deployment of an Ebola vaccine in Africa and the development of the Janssen single-shot COVID-19 vaccine in just 13 months.

Alex continually promoted a more diverse and inclusive culture at Johnson & Johnson, serving as the driving force behind many of the company’s DE&I initiatives, including a $100 million pledge to fight health inequities faced by communities of color in the United States.
