This is Joaquín, Ana Duato’s brother who succeeds in pharmaceuticals

Is called Joaquín Duato Boixis 62 years old, is CEO of Johnson & Johnson and has become one of the protagonists of the day by leading the ranking of the highest salaries according to Fierce Pharma. In 2023 the manager earned 26.5 million euros, 116% more than the 12.2 million he obtained in his first year at the helm of the ship. An impressive and surprising fact if we take into account that Joaquín is the brother of Ana Duatothe leading actress of Tell me and accused of tax fraud for which they ask her for 32 years in prison.

And luck is capricious. Joaquín is the eldest of the four children of the marriage formed by Joaquín Duato Gómez-Novella, a businessman, and Zulema Boix, who was a nurse by profession. With the exception of Ana, the rest of the children followed in their father’s professional footsteps: María Zulema is the CEO of Boat Society SL, a company dedicated to maritime transport, and Antonio is a director of Phillips Spain.

Joaquín, the protagonist of the day, dreamed of being a tennis player and worked very hard to become a professional on the court. Life, however, had other plans for him and his passion for business and medicine led him to study an MBA from Esade in Barcelona and a master’s degree in International Management at Thunderbird University, in Phoenix (Arizona). In 1989 he joined the company Janssen Farmacéutica and in 1997 he became General Director of Janssen-Cilag. Three years later he became head of Ortho Biotech Europe before moving to the United States to become vice president in 2002 and president of Ortho Biotech Inc. in 2005. As he stated in an interview, he became CEO of Johnson & Johnson “accidentally.”

He has dual nationality and is based in New York, where he lives with his wife and two children, both of legal age and university students. Joaquín also actively works to improve access to health knowledge and education more widely, and has just completed his term as a Board member of the international charity Save the Children.
