"Charlie Fox was my boss at Warner-Lambert and he was inspiringly brilliant," recalled Happi columnist Navin Geria, VP-R&D, SpaDermaceuticals. "I feel very lucky to have been able to cross paths with him so many times during his extraordinary journey. Once when I asked about his views on leadership, he said it was all about self-awareness, recognizing your failings and developing modesty, humility and humanity. I am sure every one who knew him would agree that these were the values he lived by each and every day.
