Dr. Kevin Esch Named Zoetis' Working Father of the Year
Zoetis named Dr. Kevin Esch, D.V.M., M.P.H., Ph.D., Dipl. ACVP, its 2023 Working Father of the Year. After working as a veterinarian in private practice for several years, Kevin joined Zoetis in 2014 as a pathologist in Veterinary Medical Research and Development. Since then, he has held various leadership roles, most currently as Executive Director of Global Pharmacokinetics, Dynamics, Metabolism and Safety. A father to daughters, Gabriella, 18, Eva, 16 and Vivienne, 11, two of Kevin's children have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a spectrum of chronic connective tissue disorders that requires an endless schedule of appointments in addition to an already busy schedule. “It would be impossible to manage a career and family without a true partnership with my wife Staci, whose sacrifices and coordination in managing these medical challenges is amazing," said Kevin. Kevin also believes that his parenting experience has made him a more empathetic leader. “As leaders, we can all continue to improve our ability to meet our colleagues where they are — in their roles, at a stage in a project, or on a particular day. More than anything, my experience parenting has helped me gain an understanding, at work and at home, of how to determine what is truly important, and where I should focus my energy," he said.
