- Mitch Daniels worked at Eli Lilly for 10 years in top positions including president of North American operations
- During his tenure, Lilly paid more than $2.7 billion in fines and settled 32,000 personal injury claims
- Zyprexa and Evista were marred by controversy during Daniels’ era
- Lilly was stung when it lost its Prozac patent; its market value tumbled $35 billion in a single day
