Bryant is the worldwide vice president of regulatory affairs where he supports the advancement of Ethicon’s innovation portfolio and its franchise. He also supports the growth of research and development talent within Ethicon and the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies.

In his 12-year career with Johnson & Johnson, Bryant has served in various positions including senior director of global regulatory affairs for the company’s over-the-counter drug business, product director of global strategic marketing for advanced energy surgical devices, and director of regulatory affairs globalization for the biosurgery organization.

Serving Morris, Somerset, Suburban Essex, Sussex and Warren counties, United Way is working to improve the lives of families and individuals who are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) or in poverty. Despite working hard, ALICE is living paycheck to paycheck, unable to afford the basics. According to the ALICE Report for New Jersey, 38 percent of households in the state are ALICE or in poverty.

“We look forward to working with our board members as we fight for the health, education and financial stability of ALICE throughout our region,” Franklin said.
