For John Ustica, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies, his story starts with a medical scare on a soccer field in the first grade. An abdominal pain later proved to be a tumor on his kidney, and he’d spend 65 weeks in chemotherapy, endure several surgeries and visit doctors for years to come for checkups. Ustica fully recovered, but this experience (and the restrictions that came with it) taught him a thing or two about saying “why not” to life opportunities.
Tune in to hear how Ustica’s life progressed thereafter, from academic challenges to landing in the energy industry and scoring his first management job at just age 26. Ustica shares how he progressed in Siemens and worked his way up, and the many positions, industries and locations the company would take him through along the way.
