Katherine S. Zanotti has been a Director since April 2009. She is a twenty-year veteran of Procter & Gamble, where from 1979 to 2002, she rose from Assistant Brand Manager to Vice President and General Manager of the company's North American pharmaceutical business.
That business experienced unprecedented growth during her five-year tenure, which included the launch of the osteoporosis drug Actonel. Actonel grew to $1 billion in revenue more quickly than any of the company's other brands.
Zanotti also served as Senior Vice President of Marketing at McDonald's Corp., where she led the company's reinvigoration of its business with women and families.
She received her Bachelor's degree in economics and studio fine arts from Georgetown University, and earned an MBA in marketing and finance from Xavier University.
Zanotti serves on the Board of Directors of the Alberto Culver Co., Catholic Health Care Partners, Xavier University, and the Board of Visitors of Wake Forest University Calloway School of Business.
She was a Director of Mentor Corp. before its acquisition earlier this year by Johnson & Johnson, and of Third Wave Technologies Inc. until its acquisition by Hologic Inc. in 2008.
