There’s no doubt that Joseph (Joe) Wolk grew up a fan of Johnson & Johnson (J&J). After all, his father spent 40 years working at the nearby J&J manufacturing facility. So, it’s not difficult to picture the Wolk family gathered around the dinner table with Joe’s father sharing stories from the factory floor and, perhaps, imparting some words of wisdom along the way. “The J&J credo was certainly relevant in our lives, and not just around the dinner table,” recalls Wolk.

As a kid, Wolk saw the flyers that came home from his father’s work. He witnessed the character of the people his parents interacted with at company picnics. “I played basketball growing up, and many of my dad’s work friends would come to see my games. That’s just how tight-knit it was,” he remembers. He knew, someday, he wanted to work at J&J, too.
