You might not think you could get amped up listening to someone talk about a medical device company…but get ready to be proven wrong 👀
We interviewed Chad Sievers, VP of Sales at Raridon & Associates, a medical device distribution company for Johnson & Johnson. His passion for what he does and laser-focus on taking care of his people—clients and employees—bleeds through every minute of our conversation with him.
“Our vision is actually not to grow our business, not to double our business. It has nothing to do with sales. It’s to help restore the joy of motion.”
The best part? It’s not a marketing schtick. Chad and his team are 110% committed to that mission.
