Top Achillion exec to chair CBIA board

Mary Kay Fenton, chief financial officer at New Haven drugmaker Achillion Pharmaceuticals, has been elected to lead the Connecticut Business & Industry Association's board of directors.

Fenton, also Achillion's executive vice president, succeeds John Ciulla, president of Webster Financial Corp. and Webster Bank, who becomes the immediate past chairperson.

The board also elected two vice chairs: Chris DiPentima, president of Middletown-based Pegasus Manufacturing, and Jennifer DelMonico, managing partner of Murtha Cullina LLP in New Haven.

"Mary Kay is not only a distinguished leader in the biotech and healthcare sector, but maintains a longstanding commitment to making Connecticut a better place to live and work," said CBIA president and CEO Joe Brennan. "Her experience, along with that of Chris and Jennifer, will guide our organization as we look for ways to improve Connecticut's economic future."
