Our many thanks to all ARA Members and guests for coming out to the June quarterly luncheon at Alcon on the Fort Worth campus. A great turn-out and always so much fun to see everyone and catch-up.
A special thanks also to Annie Sandell, Alcon’s Global Head of Organizational Effectiveness, for an excellent presentation on the newly independent Alcon as a medical products company — highlights from the recent spin-off from Novartis, the present position of the business, and the vision / values for the future to achieve outstanding growth. Annie exemplified the enthusiasm and excitement for being at Alcon today and all its prospects.
Also, a new Alcon Founders Museum is now open just off the lobby in Tower A on the Fort Worth campus. Please come by to see it — how great is it to retrace Alcon’s history and see the early beginnings !
Please be sure to mark your calendars for the September ARA luncheon — in particular noting the date change to Monday, September 9th — just a week earlier than originally planned. Look forward to seeing you there. Have a great summer !
