Member Spotlight

Before you go: Dave Enzerra

We interviewed Dave Enzerra, recently retired senior global operations manager and past president of The Lubrizol Corporation.

What was your career path to the position you are leaving?

I am proud to have spent my entire career at Lubrizol after graduating in 1979 with a chemical engineering degree from the University of Pittsburgh. I have held many positions across five divisions at our company. Each was its own blessing and a stepping stone that provided valuable opportunities to learn from talented and caring people who helped me along the way.

What advice would you offer to someone just entering the field?

Philanthropy is about aligning one’s values and beliefs around doing good in the world – as an individual or as an organization. Understanding the “why” that drives the “what” behind the desire to make a difference is essential. In the field of philanthropy this leads to better decisions – as board members, staff or organizations – and greater impact for those we serve.

What will you miss (if anything) about your position?

I will miss the many wonderful people at Lubrizol who were my mentors, coaches, colleagues and friends. At the end of the day, it is all about the people we meet and the experiences we share.
