You can find Medix teammates across the country following their individual passions and working to positively impacting lives. Sometimes, these experiences lead our teammates to unexpected opportunities in new places. In our latest Medix teammate spotlight, we’re checking in with Phil, who found himself transitioning from Midwest winters to Florida beaches:
Please explain your current role at Medix.
I am the sales manager for our Tampa, Florida office. I oversee business development and the operations of our team.
What brought you to this role?
I started working at Medix in 2010 out of our Lombard, Illinois office. After working to grow our scientific division for a couple years, I knew I wanted to get into leadership. When the opportunity was presented to open our Tampa office, I raised my hand and moved down in 2014.
What made you decide to work for Medix?
After graduating college, I found it difficult to find an organization that really expressed how they invest in their people. After seeing what Medix was all about, I thought, “Hey, this place has some opportunity! I want to be a part of that.”
What are the characteristics young professionals need to possess to be successful at Medix?
Integrity, a strong work ethic, and the willingness to learn.
When you’re not working hard at Medix, what are your hobbies?
I love working in the garage, fixing and tinkering with old cars and motorcycles, and doing anything working with my hands.
What’re the coolest plans you have for the rest of the summer?
No plans, just enjoying the Florida heat on the beach!
