Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer
Ken Grady (he/him/his) joined IDEXX in 2014, having worked as CIO and leader in several human health and biotech research companies such as New England Biolabs, Novartis, Chiron, and GE Healthcare, working to support drug discovery, molecular diagnostics, and world-class molecular biology and genomic driven medicine. In his role as Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Ken’s has a portfolio of responsibilities at IDEXX, including the enterprise technology strategy, operations, and security, Reference Labs technology operations and innovation, and IDEXX BioAnalytics.
Over the last 30 years, Ken has held a variety of roles that informed his current interests in innovation, the customer/employee experience, and people development, having lived and worked on both coasts of the US, in Europe, and Asia. His first paying job was as a late-night ‘chef’ at the Waffle House, before serving five years active duty as an Arabic translator in the US Army. It all came full circle at IDEXX, however, as 15-year-old Ken really wanted to be a veterinarian when he grew up before he fell into the world of computer science and engineering. Throughout his career, Ken has continued to feed his passion and curiosity for life sciences – no doubt in part influenced by the scientist (Giuia) he married who has been trying to educate him on what the big words mean for 27 years.
Giuia and Ken live in Gorham, Maine, with their adorable and remarkably intelligent Saint Bernard, Frank (Francesca), their somewhat aloof Old English Sheepdog, George (Georgina), a host of chickens, and occasional pair of pigs, turkeys, or other livestock. Their son Sam (13) and daughter Ella (18) provide occasional support for the various animals when schoolwork allows.
