More on William Weldon
Weldon, a New Jersey native, attended Ridgewood High School. After receiving his bachelor's degree in biology from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, Weldon interviewed for a job as a sales representative at Johnson & Johnson. Throughout the 1980's Weldon worked his way up from manager to vice president of international divisions of Johnson & Johnson.
 
In 1995, he became president of a new division known as Ethicon Endo-Surgery. Under Weldon's guidance, the division surpassed sales projections. In 1998, he became chairman of pharmaceuticals. In 2002, after nearly 30 years of service to Johnson & Johnson, Weldon became CEO. 
 
More on Johnson & Johnson
Johnson & Johnson, founded more than 120 years ago, is a household name. It would be hard to find a home anywhere in the U.S. that does not have at least one of the company's consumer products in it -- from baby lotion or Listerine to Band-Aids and Neutrogena products. Its medical devices and diagnostics division is known worldwide, as well. 
 
Johnson & Johnson has its Credo, which ultimately guides its decision-making in every domain. In 1982, the company's handling of the Chicago Tylenol case received wide-spread praise and, still today, is considered a classic leadership and management response to a crisis.
 
Thank you to Stillman alumnus, John Papa, treasurer of Johnson & Johnson, who helped to make this event happen.
