Joseph M. Mahady, 54, was named president of Wyeth Pharmaceuticals effective Jan. 1. Mahady, who lives in Radnor, vowed to keep expanding the Madison, N.J., company's core drugs, including Enbrel for inflammatory diseases, while developing new products.

Mahady was president of global business at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.

He said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has grown more conservative in approving drugs, and if that continues, "that disappoints not only us as an industry, it's going to disappoint the consumer public and the paying public."
