This year we are pleased to welcome Mark Vergnano, President & CEO of The Chemours Company, as our keynote speaker. The State Chamber has watched with great interest and admiration as Chemours has flourished under Mr. Vergnano’s leadership. Vergnano brings over 30 years of experience in research and development, manufacturing, sales, and marketing from his tenure with Chemours’ parent company DuPont.

Chemours, a world leader in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts, and chemical solutions, became an independent company in July of 2015. As a new company, the $6B startup faced an array of uncertainties and challenges. In response, Vergnano immediately implemented an ambitious five-point transformation plan that proved the roadmap to the company’s fiscal stability and strong financial performance. Transformation plan completed, Mr. Vergnano is now focusing on delivering the company’s three-year growth plan, strengthening relationships with local communities, and cementing the organization’s values-driven culture.


Each year a highlight of the Annual Dinner is the presentation of the Josiah Marvel Cup, the prestigious award that honors a Delawarean who has made an outstanding contribution to the state, community or society. Past winners in recent years have included Joe and Jill Biden, Robert J. Laskowski, E. Norman Veasey, O. Francis Biondi and Carroll M. Carpenter. The honoree is held in confidence until the dinner.
