President and vice-chairman of the board of directors of Johnson & Johnson James Lenehan has said that he will retire from active board duties on February 1 2004, after 28 years with the company. He joined J&J's McNeil Consumer Products subsidiary in 1976, and rose up to become worldwide president of the medical devices and consumer products division in 1999. His board vice-chairmanship also conferred divisional responsibility for consumer products. He became president two years ago. Medtech and consumer products will now report directly to J&J chairman and CEO William Weldon. Mr Lenehan will remain with the company until June 30 for a transitional period.
