  7. 7. What was your path to the top? What were the key moments and turning points?Early on, I moved from sales to marketing at Kraft headquarters. My bossresigned two weeks later, giving me an opportunity to demonstrate mycapabilities. In pharmaceuticals at J&J, I led the DTC effort in an area thathad not utilized DTC and expanded my responsibilities to include strategyand e-Business. Success earned me the ability to run four different J&Jbusinesses.
  8. 8. How did you develop your leadership skills?I developed as a leader early as class president andstudent body president. Leadership is about providing avision and a road map, building trust and setting highstandards.

  11. 11. Any tips for others looking to move up the org chart?Ask not what the company can do for you but what youcan do for the company. We have to demonstrate ourvalue and earn the ability to lead an organization. Taketime to learn, build a breadth of experience and don’t beafraid of hard work. Anticipate consequences, leadchange and drive results.
  12. 12. Is this industry still “all about the people?”It’s always about the people—I’m successful because I surround myself with great people.
  13. 13. How do you see the industry 10 years from now? Pfizer’s purpose is “Working Together for a HealthierWorld,” so I hope 10 years from now, people acknowledge we are still delivering on that promise.
