Getting Personal With Boston Scientific's Global CMO Ken Stein: Taking The Long View To Innovate, Serve Patients
‘My advice for other people in making that kind of transition into a chief medical officer type role is you're never going to know more business than the CEO, but you’re going to know more medicine than her or him.’
In this new series titled Getting Personal, we talk to new and veteran senior executives about their journeys to corporate leadership, their motivations, passions, and the peaks and valleys of running a medtech company.
