Baxter International Inc.’s renal business president Jill Schaaf has stepped down, the company announced last month, placing Giuseppe Accogli, former region head for Baxter’s U.S. renal business, as interim president while the company completes its search to permanently fill the role. 

“We would like to express our gratitude to Jill for her 15 years of service to Baxter,” said Baxter Chairman and CEO José (Joe) Almeida. “Throughout her career at Baxter, Jill has been dedicated to improving the lives of our renal patients worldwide.”
