Lewis Von Thaer, President and CEO, Battelle

August 15, 2018 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

  • Sumo

Lewis “Lou” Von Thaer was named the President and CEO of Battelle in October 2017, only the ninth CEO in the company’s 88-year history.

In 1923, industrialist Gordon Battelle provided for the creation of the Battelle Memorial Institute “for the purpose of education in connection with and the encouragement of creative and research work and the making of discoveries and inventions.” Battelle has pioneered numerous technological advancements, from the processing of uranium for the Manhattan project to extensive patents for xerography, UPC, and compact discs.

As the leader of one of Columbus’ biggest and most storied businesses, we look forward to hearing about Von Thaer’s views on Battelle’s unique history and where it’s headed in the future. Von Thaer will be interviewed by Frederic Bertley, Ph.D., President and CEO of COSI.
