6 Fifth Edition Marquis Who’s Who INSIGHT KENNETH D. CANDIDO, MD Anesthesiologist, Educator Oak Brook, IL How have you navigated disruptions in your industry to remain a top professional? It’s a combination of my family, my mentors, and the strong advice they all gave me. For a year, I worked with James Olds who discovered brain stimulation reward, and I was very much influenced by the institute of which he was a part. I was the first person to demonstrate that neurotransmitters are changed by behavior and stress. I was also blessed to have done a year of research at Yale University with the man who discovered melatonin. I spent 25 years as chair at Cornell University, and all of my prior experience prepared me for that job. What are two key behaviors/personality traits that allow you to be effective in your role? My parents taught me the most important thing was to help others. Working with my brothers and sisters taught me to enjoy individuals with different ideas and approaches. Also, I couldn’t have had better colleagues. I was absolutely lucky, and I tried to treat everybody fairly. What excites you the most about your industry? Being able to work in a helpful profession is extraordinarily valuable. Psychiatry is just plain interesting. Each person has their own story — their own things that make a difference, and you get to know people very well and care about them, but you also have to be objective. RICHARD DOUGLAS CAMERON Major General (Retired) United States Army Fort Smith, AR What are two key behaviors/personality traits that allow you to be effective in your role? Being a good listener and understanding the playing field, like a football player. You have to know what your job is, as well as the jobs of others. How do you feel your industry has changed/evolved? The military tries to get in line with whatever the current civilian leadership is, which I think has weakened it somewhat. Civilian leadership is now looking at cultural change, but they should also be looking at war plans for the next enemy. What innovations or technologies do you feel will shape the future of your industry? Cyber warfare and ensuring others don’t dominate space with satellites. Some people laugh at the new Space Force, but in the future, that is going to be extremely important. We have to look at newer technologies in terms of how they can be interdicted by an enemy. What excites you the most about your industry? What excited me the most was the idea of joining a group of motivated workers. People in all branches of the military have a culture of values. They believe in their leadership and in defending the country. It was a community of similar values. I’ve been out for a long time now, but I enjoyed my time in the military, and I was proud to serve.
