An Evening Discussion with Roger Bird, Divisional Vice President & General Manager, Abbott Nutrition
The BYU Management Society is proud to present Roger Bird, a senior executive for a large global corporation, as our guest speaker on Sept. 23. As DVP/GM of Abbott Nutrition Greater China, Roger is responsible for popular brands such as Similac® baby formula. Through his experiences in China and elsewhere, he has much to offer others seeking for success in business and in life. He will discuss two topics: 1) the challenges and opportunities for multinational companies in China, and 2) why serving others is essential for a successful and happy life (and how to do it under the pressure of a career).
He was appointed to his current position in 2009. Previously, he served as US General Manager & Divisional Vice President of Therapeutic Nutritionals for Abbott Nutrition.
Roger joined Abbott in 1983 and held various managerial positions in sales and marketing for over 30 years in Abbott Nutrition. He also managed the Pediatric pharmaceutical business, Adult Nutrition Hospital Products and Devices in the US for Abbott Nutrition.
Roger earned his degree in business management with emphasis in marketing from Weber State University in the U.S.
