Kevin W. Sharer (b. Mar. 2, 1948, Iowa) is an American businessman, and currently Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the American biotechnology company Amgen Inc. He also serves on the corporate boards of 3M, Northrop-Grumman, and the California Institute of Technology.
Sharer studied aeronautical engineering at the U.S. Naval Academy from approximately 1968 through 1971. He earned a B.S. in engineering 1970 and an M.A. in 1971. He later received his MBA from the University of Pittsburgh's Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business in 1983.
As an engineering graduate, Sharer served in the Navy from 1971 through 1978. He served on two naval fast-class nuclear submarines. At the age of 27, he became the Chief Engineer on the USS Memphis (SSN-661), overseeing her construction and her crew's training. He left the Navy with the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
From the beginning of his corporate career, Sharera??s ambition was to reach the top of the corporate ladder. From 1978 to 1982, Sharer worked at AT&T and simultaneously earned an MBA degree from the University of Pittsburgh. With new MBA in hand, Sharer briefly spent time in a consulting position with McKinsey & Company, a management consulting firm. Sharer's naval experience had caught the attention of Ron Bancroft, also a Naval Academy graduate and a partner in McKinsey's Washington, D.C., office.
In 1984, General Electric (GE) recruited Sharer for a position in corporate development. Sharer made an impression on Jack Welch, GE's CEO, who offered him a chance to lead the GE jet engine division. Sharer reportedly refused the job because that position was not high profile enough.
Thus, in 1989, Sharer left GE for an executive vice president position in marketing at MCI Telecommunications Corporation. At MCI, again Sharer became convinced that internal politics would keep him in a number three position and that he would never get to be the CEO.
So finally, in 1992, he joined biotech
