01/12/16 - When Ellen Kullman ‘83 was named CEO (and later, Chair) of DuPont in October of 2008, barely two weeks had passed since Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy sent Wall Street into a panic. Over the next seven years, Kullman would shepherd DuPont through one of the toughest economic periods in modern history, tripling its stock price by doubling down on research and development and moving away from some of the company’s legacy products.
Kullman spoke with Dean Sally Blount ’92 about being a female executive, facing the uncertainty of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and dealing with activist investors, during the Brave Leader Series, made possible by the generosity of Donna and Lloyd Morgan, BBA '62 & KSM ’63.
