Patti Parziale, manager of the Fungicide Discovery chemistry group at DuPont, shares her secret to building a strong reputation and successful career. Hint: It’s not the 5-year plan.
Parziale has devoted most of her last 26 years at DuPont to research and development in crop protection. She also plays an important role in the Discovery Chemistry research group based in Hyderabad, India. Her previous assignments include manager of process chemistry and Six Sigma Black Belt and Champion. Parziale received her Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from Yale University in 1990 under the guidance of Jerome Berson.
