Cindy Perettie
CEO at Foundation Medicine


As the CEO of Foundation Medicine, I have the privilege of leading a talented group of individuals who enable patients to have a view into their comprehensive genomic profile for their cancer.  This information is critical to clinical treatment decisions.  Creating an opportunity to inform their treatment to be more personalized.  

Creating the best possible culture and space for this talented team to innovate within is critical to my role. Building the vision for what is possible, motivating teams to reach higher with their goals, and developing talent are what energize me.

I’m lucky enough to be able to draw upon a very varied career path that feeds in to the role I have today. My background goes from science, through clinical development and on to sales and marketing, giving me a broad perspective all the way from the bench to the patient.

Outside of work you will find me outdoors being as active as possible – playing hockey, hiking, biking and skiing with my family. Hockey has been a common theme for me through life, it’s where I first learned how to be a team player and was also where I met my husband and developed an amazing set of friends I will value having for life.
