Keith Bird, Vice President Global Engineering & Manufacturing Strategy for Alcon

As announced earlier this week, we are very pleased that Keith Bird has joined our Dallas Advisory Board.

Keith is Vice President of Global Engineering and Manufacturing Strategy at Alcon Laboratories in Fort Worth Texas where he heads up the long range strategic manufacturing strategies and is responsible for Alcon’s multi-million dollar global capital investment program. Keith has been with Alcon for 20 year in various rolls with increasing leadership responsibility. Throughout his career, Keith held various engineering and leadership positions, working in the pharmaceutical industry for over 30 years.

He has broad leadership and managerial experience and has dealt with Mergers & Integration, Business Continuity, International Business Operations, and Facilities Operations.  He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Human Resource Management from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and an MBA from Texas Christian University.

Keith was introduced to PEP through our partners at The North Texas Commission. He attended his first prison event in 2012, and he instantly became hooked on PEP. He has returned to prison several times, and has also helped the Dallas re-entry team by joining them to pick up a graduate on the day that he was released from prison. He has quickly became a strong advocate for PEP, and has begun recruiting others to join him in prison.

Welcome to the DAB, Keith!
