Hudson also acknowledged the outgoing CFO, Chasseloup de Chatillon, for his role in advancing Sanofi's "Play to Win Strategy" and modernizing the finance organization.

Chasseloup de Chatillon reflected positively on his tenure at Sanofi, highlighting the company's transformation and his decision to join Apprentis d’Auteuil, driven by a passion for social impact. Roger, in turn, expressed enthusiasm for joining Sanofi during a significant period of transformation, aiming to enhance patient outcomes and shareholder value.
