What Is Your Proudest Moment in Business?

My proudest moment in the business world was 10 years ago when I was given the opportunity to work for Genzyme. Working for a company that focuses on developing and delivering transformative medicines for patients with rare genetic diseases brings me a great sense of pride and loyalty in the work I do.
