Executive and Senior-Level Positions in Medical Sales
Phenomenal growth has occurred and will continue within the health care industry. That being said, major organizations are seeking top senior level talent to lead their companies. Both public and private health care organizations seek these generally highly compensated individuals to help drive business or fulfill organizational goals. Although these individuals do not necessarily possess a clinical or medical background, they do exhibit a high degree of confidence and charisma. Generally experts in networking and negotiation, these senior level executives are constantly in front of their respective Board and sometimes the media. If you are seeking upper level executives, you may want to procure the services of an executive search firm, such as Global Edge Recruiting.
Whether public or private, every organization is continually developing and searching for brilliant leaders. Obviously, depending upon the size and structure of an organization, these jobs can vary greatly in compensation and scope. Many CEOs or top-level executives have advanced degrees in business or administration and may include backgrounds in finance and accounting. Quite often they have achieved success by progressing up through the ranks by their success in being a Chief Financial Officer, VP of Information Technology or VP of Human Resources. Sometimes, they have been an outside consultant to the organization and then moved over as a direct hire.

Most upper level management positions will be stressful. Within the health care marketing arena, senior managers are responsible for sometimes almost unachievable goals. The pressure may be intense to meet these goals that may be facilitated by the board of directors and stockholders.
Other senior level positions, such as in hospital administration, may be desirable due to the almost recession resistant nature of the business. This may be somewhat true, but these executives must deal constantly with insurance companies, reimbursement issues, physician contracting, lawmakers, and corporate owners.
Salary for Executive Roles
The obvious rewards within the positions can be great. High income and nice packages can be achieved for the few that may arrive at these positions. Virtually the sky is the limit in career growth. If an executive can demonstrate their true strengths and value to the organization, they may command $1mil+ salaries.
Job Outlook for Executive Roles
Marketing based organizations such as medical device and pharmaceutical companies obviously need winning executive leaders to help move their products and services. Even in tough economic times, top talent is in demand. Additionally, Hospitals, HMO’s and other reimbursement entities expect similar growth, barring any major governmental changes. Even with these changes agencies and organizations will be created to manage the hundreds of millions of participants in our health care system. Additionally, with the aging population, this creates even more growth and opportunity at the senior management levels. If your company is seeking someone to fill an upper level executive position, Global Edge Recruiting can assist you.
