Seattle Genetics is a company that has been operating since 1998. Dr. Clay Siegall is the founder of the enterprise, and also the current president and CEO. Clay says that he founded the company on the principle of scientific innovation, extensive research, and most importantly, the desire to help other human beings. The company has been around for the past two decades, and in this time, they have managed to achieve more in medical research than many other bigger biotechnology and clinical trial companies. Clay was interviewed about his background, Seattle Genetics and the way forward and this is what he had to say.
First, he was asked what inspired him to venture into biotechnology. He states that when he was a teenager, his father was diagnosed with cancer. He watched for five years as the father tried to fight the illness, but unfortunately, he succumbed when he was 24. By the time his father lost the battle, Clay had realized that the therapies which were used to treat cancer at the time were not very friendly to the patient. He had therefore decided that he was going to dedicate his life to helping future patients have a chance with the illness. He had already graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology.
He specialized in genetics and got a Ph.D. in genetics from the George Washington University. His first job was with the Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute. He also worked for some time with the National Cancer Institute. He admits that these are jobs that gave him a lot of the experience that he needed to make his dream a reality.
Seattle Genetics has entered into multiple licensing agreements with companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, and Genentech. These and other public and private funding campaigns have raised more than $300 million to help them carry out their research. Clay also coordinated the company’s first IPO in 2001. The first of their ADC therapies was approved by the FDA in 2011 and is currently in use in more than 65 countries. Clay hopes that the other 20 ADC drugs they are developing will also get approved.

Controlling one’s future requires insights from industry experts like David Giertz. David is a self-made financial expert with such an impressive record in creating reasonable strategies for various categories of people. He comes clear on common concerns, particularly regarding retirement. How prepared are you for it? This is one of the questions you should never allow to leave your mind. Everyone needs to understand some fundamentals to guide them into a seamless life after retirement. David Giertz primarily focuses on appropriate planning. To prevent yourself from getting trapped into a predicament, you must prepare in advance.
Proper Planning for a Stable Retirement
Regardless of the many bucks you pocket every month, the truth is that saving never comes easy. Again, it gets a bit tricky to estimate the amount of money you will require to take care of your retirement period. David advises that you get prepared with adequate payments to last your entire life considering that you will be spending more than you’ll be earning. Even though it is advisable to channel cash into your account from time to time, you realize it will never be enough to maintain you steadily throughout. Ensure you save up enough by forfeiting an extravagant life.
Deciding on Your Course of Action
At times someone may want to retire early but lack a proper plan. Before rushing into making the decision, it is wise to engage an expert in retirement plans. According to Mr. Giertz, retiring early will require you to be saving up to 33 times your yearly income. On choosing a good plan with the help of your financial expert, then you forge right ahead and cultivate towards achieving your goals. Discipline is essential, and in case of making withdrawals before reaching the said age, you will get exposed to at least 10% penalty.

The WABC licensed business coach has also proved his consistent commitment by increasing his Gallup associate engagement mark from 4.41 to 4.63.

Leaders rely on their wit and talents to persevere and succeed. Leaders always take charge on their path towards their goals. Without their perseverance, they wouldn’t be able to achieve the targets they set for their companies’ growth. One of those leaders who strive to give the best that their business deserves is Sheldon Lavin, the CEO of OSI Group.
The Leadership Unlike No OtherThere’s more to Sheldon Lavin than meets the eye. Of course, everyone knows the basics. People already know that Sheldon is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the renowned OSI Group, LLC, the brand that is responsible for so many meat and food processing products today. Being the leader for OSI Group, Sheldon managed to always put OSI in the current list of great companies that operate on a global scale.
Lavin also lends his skills to serve as the President of OSI International Foods Ltd. while remaining involved in how the company works in different countries that it is part of today.
Since 1970, Sheldon also managed to get himself involved in the financing structures of Otto & Sons, which later on formed the foundation of OSI Group. The growth of OSI Group wouldn’t have been successful if it weren’t for the intense dedication of Lavin in bringing OSI Group in front of a global marketplace. This success is evident in his achievement of the Global Visionary Award from the most respected and renowned India’s Vision World Academy last February 20, 2016.
Lavin acknowledged that this award is such an honor and a remarkable appreciation of the hard work that he did for the OSI Group to grow it into a large powerhouse company that it is right now. It wouldn’t also be possible for Lavin to be this successful if it weren’t for the dedication and concern that he has for the welfare of the employees in his company.
Ethical StandardsLeaders like Lavin always consider the future and will do everything to ensure that the next generation still enjoys what we have right now. That factor is the real consideration why right now Lavin partners with corporate leaders to train upcoming companies and entrepreneurs about how operations in the company should consider the ethical factors in doing business. This consideration means that the next generation should consider the environmental costs of their decisions and of how they run their operations.
With Lavin’s dedication for this kind of training, it’s not hard to see how far his career will still grow in the coming years.
