YCP Fairfield County: Executive Speaker Series ft. Fr. Peter Adamski
June 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
Join Young Catholic Professionals Fairfield County for our Executive Speaker Series featuring Father Peter Adamski. Peter, who received his MBA in professional accounting from Rutgers, became a CPA and worked at Arthur Andersen LLP for two years before going to Johnson & Johnson Co. at 26 years old. During his 17 years there, he orchestrated several major deals, including the acquisition of a disposable contact lens that Johnson & Johnson renamed Vistakon Acuvue. He also established a partnership that led to his company’s acquiring Splenda, the high-intensity sweetener. When Johnson & Johnson wanted to move him to California, he resigned and accepted a position at Bausch + Lomb in Rochester, where he worked for 10 years, before going into private equity. His corporate career ended as CEO of a $400 million New Jersey company that manufactured foam for pillows and mattresses.
Prior to joining the priesthood he was married to his wife Kathy more than 40 years. After she passed away in 2014, Peter Adamski entered the seminary and was ordained to the priesthood at 65 years old. He will share his testimony and his experiences of working in the business world while being a witness for Christ.
