In February 2016, Mung Chiang, Chair of the Princeton Entrepreneurship Council (PEC), announced the addition of Anne-Marie Maman ’84 as the Executive Director of the Council. With experiences ranging from Investment Banking to large medical technology companies, to startup companies, to incubator management, Anne-Marie is able to leverage a valuable blend of business acumen, finance expertise and technical knowledge to lead strategies from concept to implementation.
As a business executive, Anne-Marie has a successful history of developing business strategies and roadmaps for achieving immediate and long-term objectives. She has worked in large medical technology companies such as J&J and Genzyme, to develop and introduce innovative new technologies such as the original intravascular stent, early minimally invasive heart valve surgery systems and beating heart surgery systems. She has licensed several technologies from both academia and other corporate ventures, bringing new medical technology systems from conception through development. Her strengths are grounded in her drive to understand customer needs, and then in her ability to translate those needs into products that can work within a given environment.
In her most recent position managing the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s Life Sciences incubator, she boosted occupancy of the Center to the point of developing a waiting list and she introduced several new programs, with the objective of building and supporting the broader ecosystem of life sciences and technology in the state. She also conceived of and implemented an innovative new Executive-in-Residence program designed to match local life sciences executives in transition with the startup companies in the incubator.
Anne-Marie earned her AB from Princeton University in English and her MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Marketing, Healthcare Management and Finance.
