President, North America
“I’m a lifelong Philadelphia Phillies fan, so I’ll be rooting for them to make it back to the World Series this year—only this time to come out on top! In the American League, I pull for the Texas Rangers. At Alcon, our commitment to investing into research and development has paid off for our business, and I believe the investments that the Rangers made over the last year and a half will, likewise, pay dividends this season. As for the World Series, I’d like to see a Phillies vs. Rangers match-up (with the Phillies winning in game seven!).
“At Alcon, innovation drives our purpose of helping people see brilliantly, so as I think about the new MLB rules implemented this season, I view them through the lens of continuous improvement. Delivering on our promise also requires us to move with speed and agility—and the new MLB rules are driving a quicker pace of the games, which I have enjoyed and early returns seem to indicate that the fans, players and teams are also pleased with how the new rules are playing out.”
