Over the course of his career, Mr. Hansbury has received numerous awards for outstanding achievements on the job.

While Kurt Hansbury began his career in account management, he excelled and thrived in the medical equipment sales field. He had been working in the pharmaceutical industry for many years and decided to take the next step to further his career by delving into the world of medical device sales. Kurt spent the next 20 years working with Pfizer as the Senior Therapeutic Representative before accepting a position with Medtronic where he combined his account management skills and newfound specialty in medical equipment as the Advanced Surgical Technologies Account Manager.

Most sales professionals have a less than glowing reputation, however, Kurt Hansbury is the exception.

He firmly believes in making a positive impact on people’s lives and uses his specialty in medical equipment to help others every day. Through his work, Kurt was able to join surgeons in the operating room to provide them with new products that could more effectively help patients. Mr. Hansbury takes immense pride in being able to advise medical professionals on tools needed that can reduce time spent in surgery, increase the efficiency of procedures, or decrease recovery time.

Mr. Hansbury also possesses a competitive streak and enjoys competing with other companies to ensure his clients get the best products, and his team submits the most sales.

It is extremely apparent that while the financial aspects of the job are not too shabby, the most motivating factor for Kurt Hansbury is his ability to contribute to making someone’s life easier through the superior medical equipment he sells.

Outside of his professional responsibilities, Kurt Hansbury is an all-around family man. He has three children and loves spending as much quality time with them as possible.
