The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce will hold its 182nd Annual Dinner Monday, Jan. 7, 2019. Mark Vergnano, president and CEO of the Chemours Co., will be this the keynote speaker. Chamber members have watched with great interest and admiration as Chemours has flourished under Vergnano’s leadership.
“I am honored to speak at the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner,” said Vergnano. “Chemours is a proud Delaware-based company and is excited about the shared future of the state, Chemours, and the broader business community.”
Chemours, a world leader in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, became an independent company in July 2015. As a new company, the $6 billion startup faced an array of uncertainties and challenges. In response, Vergnano implemented an ambitious five-point transformation plan that proved the roadmap to the company’s fiscal stability and strong financial performance. Vergnano is now focusing on delivering the company’s three-year growth plan, strengthening relationships with local communities and cementing the organization’s values-driven culture. Vergnano brings more than 30 years of experience in research and development, manufacturing, sales and marketing from his tenure with Chemours’ parent company DuPont.
The annual dinner is the largest of the chamber’s annual events, drawing more than 1,000 business leaders, dignitaries, and elected officials to the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The evening’s program will include presentation of the Josiah Marvel Cup Award in memory of Josiah Marvel, who reorganized and was the first president of the modern-day state chamber.
A complimentary round-trip shuttle will be open to guests traveling from Kent and Sussex counties. For more information, contact Cheryl Corn at 302-576-6572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
