East Brunswick, N.J. – May 14, 2018 – CEO and Managing Director of CSL Limited Paul Perreault has been named “Humanitarian Man of the Year” by the Hemophilia Association of New Jersey (HANJ). HANJ President David Lechner presented the award to Perreault at the association’s 38th Annual Testimonial Dinner Dance, May 11 at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club, Bedminster, NJ.
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to recognize the work of Paul Perreault and the efforts of everyone at CSL to support the activities of the Hemophilia Association of New Jersey and the bleeding disorders community,” Lechner said.
“On behalf of our 20,000 employees around the world, I’m honored and humbled by this recognition. I’m proud of our long-standing relationship with the Hemophilia Association of New Jersey,” Perreault said in accepting the award. “We are driven by our promise to work towards a shared goal – always doing what is right for patients.
“Innovation is in our DNA,” Perreault continued, “and we also share a dedication to the science which results in improved therapies and to offering programs and services that make patients’ everyday life better.”
Lechner said hemophilia is a disease which causes the victim to bleed uncontrollably from even mild injuries. The disorder is usually inherited and due to a clotting deficiency in the blood. “Our association currently serves more than 800 hemophilia families in New Jersey,” Lechner said. “The support we receive through contributions and fundraising activities allows us to continue our work,” he said.
