Our People

At Elanco, our people shape who we are and everything we do for our customers.


We Are Elanco

Our people advocate for our customers and uphold our core Elanco values, vision, promise, and purpose-driven culture.

What drew me here 31 years ago is what fuels me still every day. I still remember standing at the Indianapolis airport on a payphone calling home to my dad after my interview. I didn't even really know what culture was back then, but it's what I described. The people, the strong community, the humility I felt, the entrepreneurial spirit, the laughter in the hallways, the love for the customer and industry.
