Viatris Executive Jennifer Mauer Joins Good Grief Board of Directors
Princeton, New Jersey—Good Grief, a leading voice for grieving children and families, today announced the appointment of Jennifer Mauer to the nonprofit organization’s Board of Directors.
Mauer, a resident of Solebury, NJ, currently serves as Head of Global Communications and Corporate Brand for Viatris, the newly launched company formed in 2020 through the combination of Pfizer Inc’s Upjohn business unit and Mylan. Previously, she served as VP Head of Corporate Communications at Merck & Co. and, prior to that, a series of roles of increasing responsibility at Bristol-Myers Squibb. Earlier in her career, Mauer served as an adjunct Professor at Georgetown University, a consultant for McKinsey & Co., and as a journalist for Dow Jones & Co.
“We are delighted to welcome Jennifer to our board,” said Good Grief CEO, Joe Primo. “Jennifer brings to us a wealth of executive experience and a passion for our mission drawn from her personal life experience. We look forward to the perspectives and new ideas she will contribute to our board.”
“I was drawn to Good Grief in part through the personal experience of losing my father at the age of 24,” said Mauer. “It was lung cancer and, yes he was a smoker, but that did not make it any easier. Without resources or support, my family suffered greatly through our grief. I wish we had had an organization like Good Grief to help us through.”
Mauer holds an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and M.S. from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, and a B.S. from the University of Richmond.
