Jeffery McCaulley came to Smiths Medical with the job of turning a flagging medical device franchise around after years of negative growth. Getting rid of the wood paneling was another story.
McCaulley, a 25-year veteran of the medical device business, held executive level positions at Zimmer Holdings and Medtronic. However, there was nothing that taught him more about culture than his time at GE Healthcare. Like so many of his colleagues in the industry, McCaulley started his career at the now Boston, Mass.-based corporate juggernaut, and serving under now GE CEO Jeff Immelt.
In this interview, we sat down with McCaulley to talk about corporate culture, why he thinks it’s so important, what he did to change the culture at Smiths Medical and his down-to-the-studs rebuild of the company’s Minnesota headquarters, where he replaced the wood paneled executive offices of the past with a new, open flow, design that is built to foster innovation.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
