Executive Summary:

Based in McLean, Virginia, Mars has net sales of more than $35 billion and six business segments including Petcare, Chocolate, Wrigley, Food, Drinks and Symbioscience.  Major brands include, among others, M&Ms, Snickers, Mars Bar, Milky Way, Twixt, Three Musketeers, Uncle Ben’s Rice, Pedigree, Whiskas, Royal Canin, Nutro, Wrigley gum, Skittles, Starburst, Alterra Coffee, Bright Tea, etc.  In chemistry, a catalyst is an agent that, even in small quantities, provokes significant change or action without itself being consumed.  At Mars, Catalyst is a network of knowledge experts & professionals, comprised of internal associates and external fellows, coming from different walks of life, academic & professional backgrounds, nationalities and cultures. We have come together with one purpose: to help Mars “remain distinctive and unique”, making a difference to our people & our planet through our performance using a fusion of sciences, technology, counterintuitive thinking, and deep access to multidisciplinary expertise external to Mars.  I am the Director of External Research for Mars / Catalyst, and am interested in connecting with Israel-based thought partners with shared values, especially in the area of entrepreneurship, in part because Israel was built on a business foundation of entrepreneurship and we have much to learn.
