DKMS honored Coty CEO Camillo Pane this week at the 12th Annual Big Love Gala in NYC. The event raised nearly $5 million to help eradicate blood cancers and related diseases. Founded in 199, the organization was created by Dr. Peter Harf, the former chairman of Coty and a senior partner of JAB Holdings which has a majority interest in Coty, after he lost his wife to leukemia. It was his hope that it could help facilitate the donation of bone marrow and blood stem cells. Harf’s daughter and co-founder of DKMS, Kahterina, told guests that at its inception the organization had about 240,000 registered donors. Today, that number has grown to 8 million. Upon receiving the award from Dr. Harf, Mr. Pane said to both father and daughter, “You have saved thousands of lives. You have an amazing passion and we at Coty share it.”
