Lucier remains the Chairman of Nuvasive, and serves on several public and private company boards, including Catalent, a leader in advanced pharmaceutical manufacturing services, Dentsply Sirona, a global provider of professional dental products and technologies, and Epic Sciences, a venture-backed company revolutionizing the use of cellular imaging to change cancer therapy.

Lucier holds a Bachelor’s in Industrial Engineering from Pennsylvania State University (graduating with distinction) and a Master’s in Business Administration from Harvard Business School.

In his free time, Greg enjoys riding motorcycles—both on and off-road—as well as skiing, which he is known to do anywhere and anytime he can.
