PITTSBURGH Steven Zylstra has been chosen to become Mylan’s new vice president of global corporate communication and public relations. Zylstra will manage and oversee all internal and external communications and provide communications and public relations counsel to members of Mylan’s global senior management team.
Zylstra was most recently with the Pittsburgh Technology Council and the Pittsburgh Biomedical Development Corporation where he served as president and chief executive officer. He has nearly 30 years of public relations, senior management, business development, marketing, government relations and engineering experience, including the past seven years as a chief spokesman for the technology and manufacturing industries in southwestern Pennsylvania.
“In Steve, Mylan is adding yet another highly-seasoned, top-notch leader to further strengthen our senior management team,” Mylan vice chairman and chief executive officer Robert Coury said: “His rich and diverse background, steeped in technology and manufacturing, makes him especially well suited to articulate the dynamic future and intrinsic complexities of both Mylan and of the generic and specialty pharmaceuticals industries.”
