Merck Promotes General Counsel Kenneth Frazier, and Appoints Successor

Post on the Wall Street Journal Health Blog -- Merck’s Vioxx Warrior Gets Promoted, by Jacob Goldstein.  Here's an excerpt:

Frazier, 52, has won points among Merck defenders for his tell-it-to-the-judge style. He hasn’t settled any of the roughly 27,000 Vioxx lawsuits filed against the company following the withdrawal of the pain medicine. So far, the company has won 10 cases and lost five.

Frazier’s replacement as general counsel is Bruce Kuhlik, who joined the company in 2005 to help deal with the Vioxx litigation. He previously worked for PhRMA, the drug industry trade group.
