Kathleen Glaub.
Coming from a family of immigrant entrepreneurs, Kathy Glaub carried on the family tradition by joining drug development company Plexxikon in 2001 as its 10th employee. She has helped guide the company, now with 45 employees, through one of the most celebrated drug approvals of the past 10 years, the metastatic melanoma drug Zelboraf in August 2011.
