Debbie Walters-Francique – Pfizer

During her 19 years with global pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, Debbie Walters-Francique has seen enough change to fill a Coinstar machine: shifts in medical technology; evolution within the company; heaving changes in the wider health care landscape. And she’s had the roles to show for it: from serving as global product counsel on a blockbuster product […]

Arlen R. Shenkman – SAP

He had mergers and acquisitions down to if not a science, then an art—Arlen R. Shenkman having fronted a 150-member team for German-based multinational software heavyweight SAP. Each year, that team vetted 500 to 600 companies as potential acquisitions, though only a few made the cut, and those companies tended to fall under three general […]

Dan Egan – Degan Media

The title to his latest book might sound like something a debauched rock ‘n roller would fess up to: “Thirty Years in a White Haze.” “Not that kind of powder,” Dan Egan emphasizes with a laugh. On the contrary, he’s referring to what can be the fluffy and pristine gift from above or the cause […]

Frank Ceballos

Frank Ceballos knew the recruiting job would likely be a temporary one—a chance to sharpen his skills for the next big position. His focus was simple: Do the work, do it well and don’t make too much noise. It took less than a month for Ceballos to toss that last one aside. Drawing on his […]

Elia Quintana – American Petroleum Institute

Growing up in Arvin, California, a modest town of 21,000 about 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Elia Quintana remembers driving past the hundreds of oil fields that dot the arid hills of nearby Bakersfield, their beams and heads bobbing like giraffes at a waterhole. To her, they were as much a part of the […]

Mike Coutu – Catania Oils

It took less than two weeks on the job as Catania Oils’ new financial controller for Mike Coutu to identify the one glaring weakness in the company’s process-efficiency efforts—other than using old plastic sight tubes to gauge Catania’s massive vats of olive and vegetable oils by eye, that is. “You could tell just by looking […]

Kristine Salerno—United Technologies Corporation

It’s been two years since you left your job—to spend more time with your family, care for aging parents, follow your military spouse when deployed—and you’re ready to get back on the horse. You have the experience, you have the credentials, but with interviews few and far between, you can’t help but wonder if opportunity […]

White Coffee

Starbucks might be a competitor on the retail front, but Jonathan White doesn’t mind raising a cup to the Seattle heavyweight in all matters coffee. “They raised the expectation for a good cup of coffee and refueled a secondary independent wave of coffee shops, and for that we have to be grateful,” muses the executive […]

John Quattrocchi – Verona, N.J., Board of Education

Much had to go through John Quattrocchi’s mind this past winter when he stepped down from the Verona, New Jersey, Board of Education after 15 years, serving several of those three-year terms as president, including the last hurrah. Not that he was feeling old and tired; this affable man seems to bustle with an understated […]

Judy F. Krandel – PeerStream Inc.

She knows something about connecting. For as Judy F. Krandel explains, many folks find their work so all-consuming that they are hard-pressed to have a fulfilling social life, and from a holistic perspective how that’s to their detriment. But the lonely hearts can always seek her assistance, Krandel having long availed herself as a matchmaker […]
