Monday, January 29, 2024, will mark the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s 187th Annual Dinner. The State Chamber is pleased to announce Incyte Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Hervé Hoppenot as this year’s distinguished keynote speaker.


Incyte, a biopharmaceutical company on a mission to Solve On., was founded in 2002 in Wilmington, Delaware. Since that time, Incyte has grown into a global organization with more than 2,400 employees and a robust portfolio of treatments in Oncology and Inflammation and Autoimmunity that are delivered to patients worldwide. Innovation is at the core of Incyte’s relentless pursuit to follow the science and find answers to manage rare and hard-to-treat diseases.


Hoppenot joined Incyte in 2014 as President and Chief Executive Officer and was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2015. During Hoppenot’s tenure, Incyte revenue went from $511 million in 2014 to $3.4 billion in 2022 and the company has tripled the number of clinical candidates in its portfolio, expanding beyond Oncology to include research and development in Inflammation and Autoimmunity. With global headquarters based in Wilmington, Incyte has expanded geographically and has operations in North America, Europe and Asia.


“I am honored to address Delaware’s vibrant and diverse business community at the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s 187th Annual Dinner,” said Hoppenot. “I look forward to sharing the Incyte story and how our innovative science is making an impact on the practice of medicine around the world.”


The Annual Dinner is the largest of the State Chamber’s annual events, drawing over 1,100 business leaders, dignitaries, and elected officials to the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The evening’s program will include the presentation of the Josiah Marvel Cup award in honor of the memory of Josiah Marvel, who reorganized and was the first president of the modern-day State Chamber. It is tradition that the recipient of the Marvel Cup is kept secret until the night of the dinner.
