"Helping hospitals to optimize their patient pathways is the most rewarding part of our role in Medtronic."

Wilfred about his position at Medtronic

My role is to lead the Restorative Therapies Group (RTG) organization in EMEA. It consists in setting the strategic direction with a target to innovate our value proposition to our patients, transform our organization, so we increase our customer experience and focus on improving patient access to our therapies.

Wilfred's education and career path

I will highlight only four of them that stretched me in my learning experience: I started as a Sales Representative, then moved to a General Manager role, then to a Vice President Europe position and finally to my current role of Vice President Restorative Therapies Group EMEA.

What I like most in my current job

The impact I have on and the accountability I have for the organization in terms of contributing to improving patients’ lives and growing the skills and competences of our RTG employees.

What I like about working for Medtronic

The patient-driven mission and the large and diverse scale of our company, where current and potential employees can develop themselves through a lot of job opportunities.

With some of our therapies, we really help hospitals to optimize their patient pathways, so that they can treat more patients and provide them with a much better quality of life. This is the most rewarding part of our role in Medtronic.

My most memorable experiences at Medtronic

I have a lot of memorable experiences. However, if I need to choose one, it is the step in my career from an individual contributor to a leader role. It is such a different and more demanding role, in which I made a lot of mistakes, but it was also the best learning experience.
