Jeff Winton, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at Alkermes, is one of the most committed and passionate leaders I’ve ever worked with.

His range of responsibilities include overseeing corporate brand and reputation, internal, corporate, commercial and research and development communications, patient engagement, social impact, and corporate events.
