Mark Vergnano, CEO of The Chemours Co., will be the keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.
The annual dinner is slated for Jan. 7 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.
“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.”
Under Vergnano, Chemours, a publicly traded DuPont spinoff, faced an array of uncertainties.
The company, which has $6 billion in annual revenue, has posted strong financial results while cutting costs and debt.
The company also affirmed its commitment to the state with a decision to keep its headquarters in Wilmington and build a research and development center at the University of Delaware STAR Campus in Newark.
Vergnano brought more than 30 years of experience in research and development, manufacturing, sales, and marketing from his time with Chemours’ parent company DuPont.
The Annual Dinner draws more than 1,000 business leaders, dignitaries, and elected officials.
The evening’s program will include the presentation of the Josiah Marvel Cup Award in honor of the memory of Josiah Marvel, who reorganized and was the first president of the modern-day State Chamber.
A complimentary roundtrip shuttle will also be open to guests traveling from Kent and Sussex Counties.
