The John W. Maitland Award Ceremony is given annually to elected or appointed government official who has provided outstanding support to the Illinois biotechnology community.  This year we will be honoring Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Director Adam Pollet and Illinois Department of Agriculture Director Robert Flider (Director Flider will be recognized at a separate ceremony). 

Adam Pollet oversees the state agency tasked with growing Illinois’ economy. Prior to his appointment by Governor Pat Quinn in November 2012, Pollet served as deputy director for the Illinois Office of Trade and Investment where he led the state’s export and foreign direct investment activities. Before joining the state in 2011, Pollet was a consultant at McKinsey & Co. in Chicago where he served client companies in the firm’s strategy and operations practices focused on the energy, transport, logistics and automotive sectors. A graduate of Harvard Law School and Stanford University, Pollet worked for the United Nations focusing on international economic development including customs modernization and trade facilitation in Afghanistan.
