Throughout his career, Nadim Yared — the CEO of surging neurostimulation company CVRx — has pushed to assume new responsibilities and duties. However, during one moment in 2006, Yared adamantly refused to discuss leaving Medtronic to become CEO of the Minneapolis area company.
The executive recruiter representing the startup’s investors refused to take no for an answer. “Nadim, I know,” Yared recalls him shouting over the cell phone. “Every single CEO say it’s not the time. But let me tell you….”
Yared cut him off. “Trust me, this is not the time.”
