We are thrilled to announce Ann DeWitt as The Engine’s COO. Ann will be instrumental to The Engine as we build the corporate network and program to support our teams making scientific and technological breakthroughs.
Ann joins us from Sanofi, where she held senior roles in business development and strategic venture investment. Prior to Sanofi, she was at Flagship Ventures. Ann started her career in R&D at 3M Company, working across fields of materials, biology, engineering. Ann holds an MBA from Harvard and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT. She serves on the Board of Women in the Enterprise of Science and Technology and on the Life Science Council of Springboard Enterprises.
Ann’s considerable experiences in tough tech make her uniquely suited to lead operations while also being part of the investment team. When not keeping The Engine running, you will likely find Ann, with her spouse and two precocious young children, riding their bicycles around Cambridge.
