He was president and CEO of Teva USA from 1999 to 2004.

David L. Schlotterbeck, 60, has also been named vice chairman in addition to his role as CEO of the company's Clinical and Medical Products sector. This sector includes the company's market-leading intravenous infusion, automated dispensing and respiratory systems, and infection prevention products.

"I am very pleased to welcome George to Cardinal Health," Clark said. "His strategic leadership, deep operational experience and outstanding global knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry will help us on our path to becoming the premier global health care company. I am also very grateful to our CFO Jeff Henderson for his strong, interim leadership of the supply chain business during the past three months."

Barrett will be responsible for all of Cardinal Health's supply chain businesses, which comprise the nation's largest distributor of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to retail and independent pharmacies, hospitals, laboratories and physician offices. This sector operates more than 70 distribution centers, 160 nuclear pharmacies and six surgical kitting facilities. In its most recent fiscal year, the supply chain sector contributed 70 percent of Cardinal Health's consolidated profit.

"Cardinal Health has so many touch points to our health care system, and has a great opportunity to influence the way in which health care is delivered," Barrett said. "I look forward with excitement to this challenge."

Healthcare Supply Chain Services is Cardinal Health's largest sector, distributing products from 3,000 manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and equipment to pharmacies, hospitals, clinics and lab customers every day. In fiscal 2007, the company reported $76.6 billion in revenue from pharmaceutical supply chain services and $7.5 billion in revenue from medical supply chain services.

Prior to joining Teva in 1999, Barrett served as CEO of Diad Research, a technology start-up. From 1990 to 1997, he held various senior management positions with pharmaceutical companies Alpharma Inc. and NMC Laboratories. Barrett is a past chairman of the Generic Pharmaceutical Association and is on the board of ambassadors of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's Project Restore.
