JOIN US WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20TH!

Innovation Leaders:

An Evening with Pierre Brondeau, CEO and Chairman of the Board, FMC Corporation

Discussion led by Robert McNamee, Managing Director, IEI and Programs at the Fox School of Business

Innovation and adaptation has become an imperative for today's companies and entrepreneurs, but what does that mean in practice? The Fox School of Business at Temple University proudly invites you to the first event of its 2019 Innovation Leaders Speaker Series, featuring Dr. Pierre Brondeau, CEO and Chairperson of FMC Corporation, a Philadelphia-based chemical manufacturer serving the agricultural, industrial and consumer markets since 1883. Dr. Brondeau will discuss FMC's approach to innovation in an increasingly competitive international market in a discussion moderated by Dr. Robert McNamee, Academic Director of Fox's Innovation & Entrepreneurship Institute.

Dr. Brondeau has served as CEO of FMC since 2010, and formerly served as the CEO of Dow Advanced Materials, a division of The Dow Chemical Company. Among other honors, he recently was named the 2019 recipient of the International Palladium Medal, awarded by the Société de Chimie Industrielle for leadership in and contributions to the chemical industry.

Temple and the Innovation Research Interchange are excited to be partnering on the 2019 Innovation Leaders speaker series. More events will be announced throughout the year, so be on the lookout for invitations to follow, including for our second event happening April 2019, in Conshohocken, PA.
