About Our Keynote Speaker
Vikram H. Dewan joined Philadelphia Zoo in July 2006; he is the 14th President to lead the area’s most visited ticketed cultural attraction, one that welcomes 1.25 million guests through its historic gates each year. Along with being America's first zoo, Philadelphia Zoo is one of the region's foremost conservation organizations.
As President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Dewan is responsible for institutional leadership and strategic direction for all programs, services, operations, and fundraising. During his tenure, the Zoo has opened several one-of-a-kind animal exhibits, launched new groundbreaking initiatives and instituted a comprehensive 10-year transformative site master plan.
Prior to joining Philadelphia Zoo, Dewan served as President of Wachovia Bank’s Philadelphia and Delaware region, operating nearly 100 branches managing more than 1,000 employees. He was an Economics and Government double major at Cornell, class of ’76, and earned an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania.
