2005 - Joshua Bennett

Joshua Bennett is helping to launch a drug that will put an end to the average of 40 minutes of poking and prodding it takes a nurse to start an IV in pediatric emergency room patients.

As a marketer for Baxter Healthcare, Josh recently introduced clinicians to Hylenex, a drug that allows fluids to be infused under a child’s skin and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. When a dehydrated pediatric patient needs fluids, a nurse places a small needle between the child’s shoulder blades, and Hylenex is injected, followed by fluids. Instead of multiple nurses holding a child down while they try to insert the IV with the child and parents watching, parents can hold the child, who doesn’t see the needle. 

Josh has been at Baxter since 2005, when he graduated with an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.  Prior to his MBA, Josh was a consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers, where healthcare projects steered him towards the industry. Joshua lives in Evanston, Illinois, with his wife Rebecca who teaches Music History at Northwestern.

Over the past year, Josh Bennett has led a team of Siebel Scholars in formulating the Vision and Core Values of the Siebel Scholars Program, and continues to develop the Siebel Scholars brand.  As a member of the Siebel Scholars Advisory Board and leader of the Siebel Scholars Marketing and Branding Board, Joshua has been working energetically to increase Siebel Scholar participation in activities and events, to define core branding and positioning of the program, and to collaborate with other Siebel Foundation initiatives.
