Daria Thorp, CEO of ACD/Labs, delivers a year end message on the key topics of 2020, and wishes for health, mental strength, and professional success in the coming year.
As 2019 draws to a close, Daria Thorp looks back on events over the past year that have laid the groundwork for the internet-enabled future of industries like ours, and reminisces about our 25th anniversary celebrations as a global company.
Daria Thorp, an alumnus of The Judy Project herself, discusses her contribution to the project's recent publication 'The Collective Wisdom of High-Performing Women'.
If you haven’t already heard, it’s our 25th year in business. This milestone has been a magnificent journey achieved by our team’s drive to help the scientific community solve research challenges and accelerate innovation. As regulatory agencies have placed increased pressure on our customers, partners, and collaborators, we’ve stood the test of time by providing software that supports processes and workflows to ensure safety, quality, and data integrity. Our motto this year is Connect—Align—Learn. We aim to connect more with our customers, align with their needs, and learn as much as possible over the next twelve months. As we mark this silver anniversary, I found it only fitting to share 25 achievements we’ve celebrated along the way.
As 2018 comes to a close and we approach a milestone year for ACD/Labs—2019 will be our 25th year in business—I reflect on the vigorous path of innovation ACD/Labs has taken in the last few years. For a business to remain relevant and vibrant, particularly in the science and technology sector, addressing the current needs of our customers, and most importantly anticipating those that lie ahead, is vital.
As 2017 comes to an end, Daria Thorp, President and CEO of ACD/Labs, looks back the company's 23 year history, and recounts some of its notable solutions, including ACD/Spectrus, ACD/Name and ACD/Percepta. She also discusses Luminata, ACD/labs' award winning impurity control informatics solution, which was introduced earlier this year.
At times, it seems that our world is revolving faster and faster, with the industry and economy speeding up through a colossal pace of change. Let me sincerely wish you and your loved ones this holiday season, and at the eve of the New Year, inner peace and stability, in this moment and in every moment of 2017.
I speak for our organization when I say the entire ACD/Labs team feels continuously connected to the successes of our customers. Like most of you, members of our team have dedicated years to the advancement of chemistry R&D, which has led to many business relationships, and more importantly, personal friendships. It’s not only our business, it’s our passion. On behalf of all of us at ACD/Labs, I would like to wish you a successful year ahead!
