They are seasoned pros leaving a lasting mark on the lives of patients, colleagues and the industry as a whole,” according to the PharmaVoice article published Thursday. “Our Red Jacket honorees are also dedicated mentors known for paving the way for the next generation of transformative leaders. And they pull all this off while often advancing greater goals such as patient access, equity and diversity, gender parity and better health outcomes for all.”

The 2022 Red Jacket honorees are:

  • Udit Batra, CEO of Waters Corp.
  • Fabio Gratton, founder, chief alchemist of Alchemy Factory
