France-based medical imaging company Guerbet has named Petra Zalabak to its executive committee as group human resources vice president. She replaces Jean-Rémy Touze and reports directly to the group’s CEO, David Hale.

Petra Zalabak, aged 45, joined Guerbet in January 2018 as human resources (HR) director for manufacturing and technical operations and group director of labor relations. Previously, she held both generalist and specialist HR roles for companies such as Bourjois/Chanel, E. Leclerc and, more recently, AstraZeneca. Lately, Guerbet appointed Zalabak global head of talent, learning and development.

Zalabak is Franco-Czech and holds a master’s degree in business law, supplemented by a course in human resources.
