Eli Lilly CEO to Address Senior Chemists in Indianapolis
In conjunction with the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis and a meeting theme of “Chemistry in Motion”, one person readily comes to mind as a keynote speaker for the Senior Chemists Breakfast. He is John C. Lechleiter, Ph.D., who rose through the ranks at Eli Lilly & Co., Inc. from a synthetic organic chemist position to become Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. Having experienced enormous change in the pharmaceutical industry, Dr. Lechleiter will address those changes and what Lilly is doing to create, manage and respond to change. The title of his talk is: Innovation – The Long Run.
The event is on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 7:30 a.m., at the J. W. Marriott Hotel, White River Ballroom E. Ticket price is $15.00 and can be purchased through meeting registration. A limited amount of tickets will be available at the door.
