THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced the appointment of Cynthia M. Patton to senior vice president and chief compliance officer, effective Oct. 22. In this role, Patton will report to Robert A. Bradway, president and chief executive officer, and will be responsible for Amgen's worldwide compliance and business ethics organization. She succeeds Anna Richo, who has resigned from the company effective Oct. 31 to join another global biopharmaceutical company as general counsel.

Patton joined Amgen in 2005, and was most recently a vice president in the Amgen law department with responsibility for commercial legal activities in the United States. Previously, she served as the lead commercial lawyer for both the oncology and inflammation business units.

"Cynthia has more than 20 years of healthcare legal experience and a deep understanding of our business operations," Bradway said.  "Cynthia's addition to Amgen's leadership team will help us further our commitment to conduct business ethically and in compliance with the laws and regulations that govern our business and industry."

Before joining Amgen, Patton served for seven years as the general counsel of a California HMO. Patton received her J.D. from George Washington University and her bachelor's degree from Vassar College.
