Co-founders Matt O’Neal and Bob Mattioli had both worked their way up through the ranks from device specialists to sales representatives to senior managers and officers by the early 2000s. And they both recognized a similar problem within highly specialized medical device careers: the real risk most organizations ran when making new hires was an unacceptably high new hire attrition rate.
