About Horace Nalle


Horace Nalle - Professional Summary:    


Horace Nalle is a principal at Oriole Animal Health, LLC. Oriole provides business and transactional advice to companies and investors in the field of animal health. Oriole operates in some cases as a consultant and, in other cases, as an equity partner.


Previously, as a member of the team that spun the animal health assets of pharmaceutical giant Merck into Merial in 1997, Horace Nalle played a key role in the company’s operations for the last 15 years. Nalle was first hired by Merck in 1991 to provide legal counsel to its US human health business, where he assisted the team that grew ZOCOR into the world’s then-leading statin. By 1996, Nalle was helping as the company divested its crop protection business and spun off its animal health business into a new joint venture. When the animal health business became Merial, Horace Nalle joined the new company as its General Counsel and Company Secretary. In this role, he oversaw all legal and compliance matters as well as mergers and acquisitions and antitrust suits. 

Horace Nalle also took on other key roles at Merial. From 2001 to 2002, he served as the Head of Regulatory and Public Affairs, and in 2008, he became the head of Merial’s Blue Sky Research division. Blue Sky Research designs high-risk projects with the goal of developing new product ideas. Additionally, Nalle was the Chief Executive Officer of Hubbard LLC, a poultry-breeding company owned by Merial. During his tenure as CEO from 2002 to 2005, he led a biotechnology project that studied avian embryonic stem cells, with the goal of transforming poultry breeding and production. Merial divested the company in 2005, and Nalle returned to his duties as General Counsel, also serving as Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs.

Before joining Merck in 1991, Horace Nalle spent nearly a decade at a corporate law firm in Philadelphia. He received his Juris Doctor from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1982 and his undergraduate degree from Harvard College in 1978.

Horace Nalle is a member in good standing of the Pennsylvania bar.
