Reviews

  • JF
    Sean was an incredible asset to the Sales Operations team. He effectively combined his Marketing experience with his business knowledge to support the North American Sales team. His strength was in taking a complex business challenge, breaking it down into components, and then bringing the right people together to facilitate a resolution. His approach was substantiated by solid data and analysis, which ensured more complete and accurate outcomes. He was a pleasure to have on the team!

    Sean is highly strategic, understands the complexities of the health care system, and is a masterful marketing professional. Working with Sean to execute webinars and case studies was a breeze: He knew exactly what he wanted, made efficient use of everyone's time, and anticipated and averted problems before they occurred. I highly recommend him!

    Sean is a consummate professional. I worked on a pharmaceutical product launch as a contract representative for a district Sean managed. Sean was very involved with our team and always ready to cross corporate lines to provide the best outcomes for the physicians and patients we served. His open door approach was very ,much appreciated by our team. And heanch the Pacific Northwest lead the nation in sales.

    Sean's robustly high energy level, creativity, and consistently positive demeanor are contagious. In his time at Philips, he has left his mark on a high number of successful, lasting programs. Whether tackling improvements to win-loss reporting, delivering specialized training, or rolling out important corporate initiatives, he has executed with panache. Simply put, Sean has a keen ability to effect real organizational change - a rare quality among employees at any level. I unreservedly recommend Sean.

    Sean is THE Go-To Guy for project management. Enthusiasm, Creativity and Stick-to-itive-ness make him a key driver for programs. A keen observer of business trends and strategic direction, Sean will drive meetings, and bring a fresh voice to topics that need to be reviewed. He is not afraid to disagree with the loudest or most popular opinion, and for this he has won my respect as well as the respect of many others here at Philips.
