Who We Are
Our Directors bring an extraordinary wealth of skills and backgrounds to the Board. From Subra Suresh, an acclaimed scientist whose background in microfluidics gives him key understanding into the future of technologies, including 3D printing, to Stacy Brown-Philpot, CEO of TaskRabbit, a company at the forefront of today’s personal services-oriented disruptive technology boom, our Board members are advising us based on real world experiences. MacArthur Fellow Yoky Matsuoka brings her leadership and research and development experiences from acclaimed academic institutions and industry leading companies. Their skills are complementary. Chip Bergh’s experience at Procter & Gamble and now Levi’s means he can instantly grasp the complexities of our supply chain and Richard Clemmer’s experience at NXP Semiconductors and Agere Systems enables him to provide valuable insight in connection with the evaluation and execution of key strategic transactions, while Shumeet Banerji and Mary Anne Citrino both come from financial industry careers, lending keen eyes to our financial management, risk oversight and investment strategy. Former public company CEOs Stephanie Burns and Robert Bennett lend the benefit of their experience at the helms of companies and Aida Alvarez and Stacey Mobley provide perspectives from the fields of government and corporate law, respectively. Together, these Directors and their skills help us to keep reinventing.
