Interview by Steve Halasey

Martin D. Madaus, 
president and CEO 
of Roche Diagnostics, 
on leadership 
in the market--
and in the boardroom.

Leadership counts--and not just on the bottom line. Company leadership can influence the direction of a marketplaceand its investors, making available resources that would otherwise have gone into other sectors or industries. And personal leadership can encourage companies to take on challenges well beyond those of an already competitive marketplace.

But don't take our word for it. Ask Martin D. Madaus, president and CEO of Roche Diagnostics Corp. (Indianapolis), the leader in the global market for in vitro diagnostics (IVDs). Rising through the ranks at Boehringer Mannheim (acquired by Roche in 1997), Madaus took over the helm of the company in January 2000. He arrived with a clear notion of the kind of company he wanted to lead, and rapidly set about putting his changes in motion.
