We are delighted to be offering this special online “Fireside Chat” with Vita Cassese to Wharton Club of Chicago on Thursday evening, April 15th, from 6:00 – 7:15 pm Central Time. Vita built a remarkable leadership career through all stages of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals' impressive growth from $500MM to $62B. During this time, as Global Chief Information Officer of the Pharmaceuticals Group, she ultimately led an organization of nearly 2,000 employees in 44 countries with an operating budget exceeding $1.5B. As an integral member of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals’ eight-person worldwide Executive Leadership Team, she was centrally involved in setting long-term business strategy.

Vita presently sits on the boards of Onto Innovation (NYSE: ONTO) and Loftware, Inc. She has previously served on the boards of Interactive Health, Decision Resources Group, StayWell Health, Zitter Health Insights, and The Medical Knowledge Group. In addition to her board service, Vita is also the CEO of Mardon Management Advisors, healthcare technology and analytics advisory firm, and a Senior Advisor at Health Enterprise Partners Private Equity.

Please join us for an open and lively discussion with Vita as she shares her thoughts on topics ranging from...lessons she’s learned during her career, the best career advice she ever received, what it was like to be a part of Pfizer’s tremendous growth, her varied Board experience, Private Equity, and current technological developments in healthcare.

In healthier, pre-pandemic times our Chicago Club’s “off-line” equivalent to online “Fireside Chats”' was the “Top Executive Dinner Series”. We plan to offer several similar “Fireside Chats” throughout 2021.

Please be aware that these events are, limited to 15 attendees, and sell-out very quickly.
