Larry Montani serves as BNAC Advisory Council Chair and leads the Strategic Planning committee. His service is inspired by a family history of MS, having three siblings with the disease, two of whom died from its complications. After an introductory visit in 2010, he joined the council hoping to help BNAC find answers and better outcomes for all the champions who fight Multiple Sclerosis. His work on the Council aims to leverage BNAC skill sets for sustainable revenue and enhance collaboration in the MS research community. A former chemical manufacturing executive, Mr. Montani also serves in advisory roles for local education, human services and manufacturing entities.
