Robin MacarioPrincipal, Meeting & Convention Services at Genentech
Robin began her career at Genentech in 1984 working in the Human Resources department. About a year after starting, Robin was asked to take over planning the company events, which included the family picnic, holiday party and Genentech’s infamous Friday “Ho-Hos” (a chance to gather and download after a long week).
In 1991, Robin transferred over to the Sales & Marketing department as a meeting coordinator. In 1993, she took over planning the company’s National Field Meeting, which at the time was for less than 300 people. Today Robin still oversees Genentech’s NFM – only now its for around 3000 attendees!
Robin works on many other key meetings such as our Annual Genentech Womens Professional (GWP) Summit and partners with our brands and functional partners on launch meetings and many other strategic events.
Robin uses her 38+ years of experience at Genentech to build strong partnerships with internal stakeholders and external vendors.
