Brett Heim joined our training programs just three months after graduating from college, where he received a BA degree in Psychology. Brett had relatively little sales experience, but was clear about his hopes for breaking into medical sales. As a collegiate athlete, Brett was a leader on both his Lacrosse and Hockey teams, and had a competitive spirit that is always well received by hiring managers in the device industry. He attended the first Academy class ever offered and, because of his exceptional performance, he was invited to continue his training in the Spine Program. Brett was interviewing before graduation and accepted a position with DePuy Orthopaedics shortly after graduation. During his first year in the field, Brett received the 2010 DePuy National Ring of Honor Award for both Orthopaedic Reconstruction and Trauma, as well as the 2010 DePuy Mountain Regional Award. After two years with DePuy, Brett signed on with Medtronic last November and is now selling spinal implants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
