Dinner Recap – Nov 04, 2019

/ 16 Hours ago

We had a fantastic dinner with 45 CEOs at Tabla on Nov 4th.

We offer our sincere thanks to our friend and ACEO member, Dr. Raymond Schinazi, Frances Winship Walters Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Laboratory of Biochemical Pharmacology at Emory University.

Here is a little more about Dr. Schinazi:

  • He is an organic, medicinal chemist
  • Founded the cure for Hepatitis C
  • Cured an estimated 5M people
  • Founded Pharmasset and raised around $45M in its 2007 IPO at $9 per share
  • Pharmasset was taken over at $137 per share by Gilead for 11.4B
  • Gilead made their 11.B investment back in the first year of sales of Dr. Shinazi’s drug
  • Curing Hepatitis B is his next project

“I enjoy coming to the ACEO dinners to watch others share learnings, mentor and meet talented CEOs.”

– Dr. Ray Schinazi

We look forward to seeing you at our next dinner.

Due to the long waiting list for our super exclusive CEO dinners, we require invited attendees to RSVP to Atlanta CEO council 48 hours prior to each private dinner. If you cancel after the 48-hour confirmation period or are a no-show after confirming your attendance, you will lose your priority invitation status for the next dinner.
