July Program - Kevin Conroy

Exact Sciences: The Story of a Start-Up Committed to Eradicating Cancer

Please join us, Tuesday, July 10, to hear Kevin Conroy present Exact Sciences: The Story of a Start-Up Committed to Eradicating Cancer.

Please plan to meet at The Madison Club at 11:30 for networking; lunch will be served at noon.

In 2009, Kevin Conroy made the decision to move Exact Sciences from Boston to Madison where it has become one of the fastest growing companies in the area. Kevin will talk about why he chose to locate the business in Madison, how he views the start-up environment in our area as well as the company vision and mission to help eradicate cancer.

 “What excites me most about working at Exact Sciences? Solving hard problems with exceptional people. It’s incredibly energizing to know that our collective ability and experience is making a real difference in the early detection of cancer, a space in which few companies have been able to carve out a leadership position. I’m just as excited that we’re putting our skills and know-how to work bringing other products to market where we can make a similar difference.

The mission we’ve outlined and the challenges in front of us put Exact Sciences in a unique leadership position to help win the war on cancer through early detection.” - Kevin Conroy

Kevin Conroy joined Exact Sciences in 2009. In his roles as Chairman of the Board, CEO and President, Kevin works with the board of directors and investors to oversee company strategy, create and foster a culture of collaboration and innovation, build a strong leadership team and ensure company resources are properly allocated to create the most value.

Prior to joining Exact Sciences, Kevin served as chief executive officer, president, Third Wave Technologies; intellectual property counsel, GE Healthcare; chief operating officer, venture-backed technology companies; intellectual property litigator, McDermott Will & Emory; partner, Pattishall, McAuliffe, Newbury, Hilliard and Geraldson

Kevin earned his JD from the University of Michigan Law School and BS from Michigan State University
