This month, we're shining a spotlight on an employee that has been with us for five years now.
Seth, what do you do as a Sales Manager?
My day is full of appointments and cold calls with established and potential accounts. Every day is something different and new for me, even though I've been with 180 for 5 years now. I am currently covering territory in the northeast.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being out and about on a daily basis. I've been doing it my entire career, and I don't know how I would function behind a desk if I had to. Also, there is never a dull moment in the field. There are always new challenges to overcome. It keeps things interesting!
What’s unique about 180 Medical that makes it such a great place to work?
180 is still a family even though we are growing like crazy. I worked for a major drug company prior to 180 Medical, and there, you are just a number -- not a name. It is very rare to have this kind of dynamic in our industry. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the company.
Anything you’d say to someone thinking about applying for a job here?
This is the place you want to be if you want to prove yourself and excel. There is upward mobility, and the structure allows a top performer to stand out and be recognized.
What's one of your favorite stories of how you helped or interacted with a customer or facility?
There is a guy on one of our national brochures who is a patient of one of my old facilities. I remember the lengths the inside team and I went to in order to help him out, and in the end, it was definitely appreciated. He even uploaded his own YouTube video praising 180 Medical, and when I saw that, I knew this was why I am doing my job -- to help others!
Tell us just a little bit about yourself.
I love to play golf, although I rarely get time to play anymore with a 1-1/2 year old and another baby on the way (due date is Valentine's Day 2015). I've been married for 6 years. I like to cook, and I regularly tear my house apart to start new projects constantly -- it's what I do to de-stress.
What's a favorite quote that keeps you inspired?
"Seek first to understand, then be understood." -- Stephen Covey. It's a great quote and a good line to live by, especially when dealing with many different types of people on a daily basis.
We'd like to give a big thank you to Seth and to all of our amazing Territory Sales Representatives and Managers in the field! Your work is so important to 180 Medical!
