About Us

How we govern ourselves as a company is as important as anything else we do.

Good corporate governance benefits both our customers and our shareholders, and is essential to our long-term business success.

For this reason, we devote considerable time and resources to making sure that:

  • our policies reflect our values and business goals;
  • we have an effective corporate governance structure; and
  • we are operating in a way that is open, honest and transparent.

Our chairman and CEO, Kenneth C. Frazier, is accountable to the Merck Board of Directors.
