Honeywell CEO reveals how a walk with friends led to 20,000 people being vaccinated against Covid
More than 20,000 people were vaccinated against Covid-19 last weekend at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The idea for the three-day event came during a modest walk, according to Honeywell International CEO Darius Adamczyk.
“In the Covid era, one of the social things you can still kind of do is go for walks outside with some of your friends,” Adamczyk said Tuesday on “Squawk Box.” One weekend, Adamczyk said, he went for a stroll with Carolina Panthers President Tom Glick and Atrium Health CEO Gene Woods, both of whom live in his neighborhood.
The men were discussing the rollout of Covid vaccinations across the U.S., which got off to a slower-than-expected start beginning in mid-December, Adamczyk recalled. “We said, ‘You know, maybe we could help here. Maybe we could partner as a team.'”
