Are you a revenue driver or just an order taker? More importantly, do you understand the distinction? Francisco Martinez didn’t really know—let alone care—when he fell into a medical sales role out of necessity years ago. Now? He’s a sales coach, trainer, and productivity enthusiast on a mission to dignify selling and help high achievers go beyond transactions. We sat down with the executive sales manager for Empire Medical (Arthrex) to chat about his 180-degree mindset shift, the power of humility, the industry’s growing need for hard truths and clear motives, and more.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- The irony of using “salesy” as a dirty word (and what’s really behind it)
- How to champion the culture you want to be a part of, regardless of your role
- Why a failure to consistently define goals can lead to misaligned teams
- How to make an impact within and beyond MedTech using the three ‘E’s
Plus, we explore ways to balance the dual responsibilities of sales and service more effectively.
