Deirdre Connelly, who became the president of North American pharmaceuticals with GlaxoSmithKline in February, doesn't have much down time these days.
Most of her time is spent working or traveling between GSK's U.S. headquarters in Research Triangle Park and another large campus outside Philadelphia. Read our Q&A with Connelly here.
Another tidbit about Connelly: During the little free time she does have, she mostly reads and spends time with friends and family around the dinner table.
She has been reading several books by Spanish authors recently, including "Niebla," by Miguel de Unamuno. The novel is essentially a metaphor for man asserting his authority against God.
Connelly, who was born in Puerto Rico and is Roman Catholic, also recently read "The Shack" by William Young, a fictional account of the Holy Trinity. Connelly said she enjoyed the depiction of God as a woman and the life lessons the book offers.
