In addition to this recognition, Zoetis also celebrated the achievements of two outstanding employees. Mary Bradley was named Zoetis’ Working Mother of the Year for 2023. Bradley, the Head of Colleague Experience Communications, has made a significant impact on the company’s brand and culture in a short span of two years. She has played a pivotal role in developing and implementing Zoetis’ employer value proposition recruiting brand and senior leader engagement strategy. Bradley is also passionate about nurturing future talent through the Zoetis Internship Program, introducing college students to the animal health industry as they consider a career in communications. As a working mom and a pet parent to seven senior rescue dogs, Bradley feels a deep connection to Zoetis’ purpose and is proud to work for a company that makes a positive impact on animals, the world, and its people.
Dr. Kevin Esch, D.V.M., M.P.H., Ph.D., Dipl. ACVP, was honored as Zoetis’ Working Father of the Year. Esch joined Zoetis in 2014 and has held various leadership roles, currently serving as the Executive Director of Global Pharmacokinetics, Dynamics, Metabolism, and Safety. As a father to three daughters, two of whom have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a chronic connective tissue disorder, Esch understands the challenges of balancing a demanding career with the responsibilities of caring for his family. He credits his wife, Staci, for her incredible support and coordination in managing their children’s medical needs. Esch believes that his parenting experience has made him a more empathetic leader, enabling him to better understand the needs of his colleagues and prioritize what truly matters.
