It’s a common theme for people with a background in sports to use what they have learned from the game when they get into post-athletic careers. The same can be said for those who went into medical device sales. But it’s not as easy as it seems. For Matt Nover, years in professional basketball have somewhat prevented him from building the necessary experience to stand out in his chosen field. He had to take the skills that he had learned from being an athlete and translate them into the world of work, sales, and leadership. His hard work paid off and he is now the Clinical Sales Director at TELA Bio, a medical device company that specializes in soft tissue reconstruction. Kicking off this two-part conversation with Samuel Gbadebo, Matt explains how he went from a professional basketball career to becoming a leader in the medical sales field. He also talks about the skills that he has learned since he took on that role, as well as his passion for teaching others the ropes of medical device sales.Love the show?
