From the Marines to Merck: Pursuing Missions That Matter

By Joe Butcher, Associate Director, Corporate Strategy
Blog

When I decided to pursue a career in the military, I wasn’t sure whether it would be for 5 years or 20 years. I was passionate about serving our country and drawn to the Marine Corps’ camaraderie and values of “Honor, Courage, and Commitment”. I’ll be forever grateful for the experiences the Marine Corps provided me and, most importantly, the Marines with whom I served.

Ultimately, I decided to leave the military for business school and a new mission. I believe that the private sector’s resources can and should be used to help solve our world’s most pressing challenges.

Merck Emergency Drone Delivery Experiment Combines Supply Chain Innovation and Corporate Responsibility

Blog

A Merck experiment flying drones carrying medicines to remote locations to see if the technology is viable during emergencies may have appeal in disaster situations.

The pilot tests are innovative not just because they involve unmanned aerial vehicles but because of the technology-enabled, real-time, cold-chain monitoring systems on board. In simple terms, a device like a mobile phone sends data from the drone to the ground so engineers can monitor the temperature and therefore verify the stability of the medicines during the flight.
