“Mark is recognized for his strategic vision and focus on technology innovation to drive growth in a highly competitive industry, as well as his success and personal commitment to fostering international partnerships and joint ventures to expand the footprint of a U.S.-based business in key markets all over the world," added Steven Collis, AmerisourceBergen president and CEO. "Mark’s insights will be invaluable as we pursue our long-range plans to increase our international presence and invest in technology to enhance supply chain efficiency and security.”
Durcan currently serves on the board of directors of Freescale Semiconductor, the Semiconductor Industry Association Board and the Tech CEO Council. He is the Chairman of the Micron Technology Foundation, which was formed to advance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and support civic and charitable institutions in the communities in which Micron employees live and work.
