This week, the global business publication Fortune magazine announced its 2020 BusinessPerson of the Year list. Kristin Peck ranked #15 in her first year as CEO of Zoetis. This annual ranking of business executives is based on a screening of 10 metrics ranging from return on capital to total return to investors, and selections are then made by the Fortune editorial team.

“A pandemic that dealt a blow to the profits of many human health care businesses hasn’t sidetracked animal health company Zoetis from its upward trajectory this year,” the article noted. Kristin Peck’s profile highlighted Zoetis’ resilient performance during the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on the strength of the company’s petcare business and the launch of Simparica Trio®, a triple combination parasiticide for dogs. The article also cited Zoetis’ strong profitable sales growth and stock performance as factors in Peck’s selection.

Congratulations to Kristin. The full 2020 Business Person of the Year list and article can be accessed here.
