DuPont executive to speak Feb. 18

Thomas M. Connelly Jr., senior vice president and chief science and technology officer for DuPont, will be on campus Wednesday, Feb. 18, from 9-10 a.m., to make a special presentation titled, "From the Lab to the Consumer: a Brief Overview of DuPont's Products in Society." Connelly has been with DuPont over 25 years, working in locations throughout the world. His positions have included research engineer, global product manager, director for the European Techinal Center in Geneva, Switzerland, business director for various DuPont divisions - including Kevlar aramid fiber - and general manager of DuPont Fluoroproducts. The Toledo native holds a doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of Cambridge, as well as degrees in chemical engineering and economics from Princeton University.

Ohio University's College of Health and Human Services is pleased to bring Connelly to campus to speak with students in the retail merchandising program. Because room 235 in the new classroom facility was scheduled for the event, additional seating is available for students in other programs. An abstract of Connelly's presentation follows. If you believe this presentation will be beneficial to your students, you are encouraged to share this invitation with them. If you would like to bring an entire class or group, please contact Kathleen Bonte, assistant dean for development, at 593-9335 or bonte@ohio.edu to make arrangements so capacity limits can be more accurately anticipated.

ABSTRACT: In 2002, DuPont celebrated its 200th anniversary. Success in business has been sustained by continually evolving to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. DuPont has done this by transforming science into new technologies. These evolving processes of meeting market needs with scientific advances are inexorably linked in developing new innovations. A brief overview of DuPont as a corporation will provide a basis for understanding how the company connects with the marketplace and translates it science and technologies into innovations to meet societal needs.
