He also is a member of the Business Roundtable. At the end of 2009, he completed a term as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
"Along with his knowledge and passion for emerging markets and international operations, Scott Davis will also bring to our board his unique expertise in supply chain logistics at a time of rapid global expansion in the health care industry," said Alex Gorsky, chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson. "Scott will be a valuable member of our Board, as we continue to position Johnson & Johnson as a leader in developing solutions that improve patient outcomes."
