Dr. Levy will speak on “Lessons Learned in Business Transformations,” particularly
in terms of the ethical dilemmas he’s faced as a leader of Varian Medical Systems
and other top healthcare organizations.
Honored by Joint Venture with the 2010 David Packard Award for civic engagement, Levy today chairs the board of directors of Varian Medical Systems, a company to which he has devoted most of his professional career for more than forty years.
He also has chaired the board of United Way in Silicon Valley and Joint Venture’s Smart Health initiative. He is an internationally recognized health care expert, an accomplished nuclear chemist, a vibrant and dedicated community leader, an avid outdoorsman and traveler, a passionate baseball fan, and a devoted husband, father and grandfather.
Beyond his distinguished career, Levy somehow found a way to step outside his Varian
role and make a significant difference in the broader community, working behind the
scenes, between the lines, around the edges. He has done it quietly some of the time,
and sometimes he’s done it with a bullhorn because he needed to mobilize people and
resources and become a powerful change agent.
