Ann Fandozzi '93
Innovation and Perseverance: The Secret to Success
APRIL 29, 2022
As a computer engineering major at Stevens Institute of Technology, Ann Fandozzi '93 was set to embark on a technical career path: She started out with an engineering job at Lockheed Martin and had a strong interest in pursuing a technical Ph.D. down the road. Instead, Fandozzi's path led to a career in business. She reached executive positions at several Fortune 100 firms and achieved the CEO role at three companies, most recently with Ritchie Bros. (NYSE: RBA), where she has been CEO since January 2020. Fandozzi’s talk will focus on how her passion for innovation, her strong bias for analytics — instilled in her at Stevens — and her perseverance in the face of adversity culminated in a fascinating career journey.
