Ep 1: Randy Spaulding – Founder & CEO of Spaulding Clinical
Posted: March 10, 2017
This episode of GrowthMinded Milwaukee features one of my absolute favorite entrepreneurs.
I met Randy Spaulding a couple years ago and have yet to meet another person who is so filled with belief and passion about his family, his company and the purpose they serve.
Randy has spent his entire professional life bringing cardiac monitoring devices to market. He cut his teeth working under Michael Cudahy’s leadership at Marquette Electronics. He moved on to GE Healthcare and then Mortara Instruments.
Ten years ago, he and renowned cardiologist Dr. Jay Mason joined forces and started Spaulding Clinical . Located in West Bend, Wisconsin, they are now considered a leading clinical research out-sourcer.
They work with pharmaceutical manufacturers around the world to test the safety of drugs during all stages of the drug approval process. They are the best in the business when it comes to cardiac care. We know that because they seemingly win best of industry awards every year.
He considers himself an amateur theologian. I consider him a true contemplative. This is a person who embarked on a three day silent retreat and emerged from that process having identified the core values for his company. (With a nod to Chris Lowney and his book “Heroic Leadership.”)
I hope you will walk away seeing what we saw. Enjoy the show!
