While I have been with Dukal for over 20 years, I recognize that I don’t know everything that a manufacturer needs to know to be successful bringing a product to market within the healthcare space… As part of HMMC, I get access to a broader knowledge base and can learn from the experiences of my peers. HMMC has had a positive impact on both my professional growth and the success of Dukal.”

VP, Business Development
Dukal, LLC

HMMC provides unique opportunities that allow me to strengthen my professional network and industry knowledge, while bringing valuable insights to assist in my day-to-day career responsibilities.”

Tanya Coby
Senior Integrated Marketing Manager, Medical Marketing

I am a member of HMMC because two legends from our industry, Mr. John Moran and Mr. Don Kitzmiller, told me I should join. I have not missed a meeting since and I look forward to our next get together!”

Mr. Robert Saron
Symmetry Surgical Inc.

The conferences are a great place to network, and the meetings have great content and interesting speakers. It was good for me to join at the time, because I was looking to increase my networking within the industry and [access] ongoing education. I’ve networked, gained friendships, learned a great deal and gained information and insight that has helped both me and my organization succeed.”

Don Nymberg
Vice President, OPM Division
B Braun Medical, Inc.

HMMC has been a tremendous resource when facing new or challenging situations and the membership has proven to be open, willing and capable of providing counsel and guidance which has helped me to provide greater value for my company.”

Mr. Carl Meyer
Executive Vice President
The Wetrich Group, LLC

Through the 26 years of my membership with HMMC, I have learned so much from the speakers and panelists on the agendas, and I have always left each conference with at least two or three ‘take-aways’ that would greatly benefit our company. I have also been fortunate to have served the organization on the two separate terms of membership of the board of directors, and on various committees.” I feel that the role of HMMC as a voice for manufacturers, as a source of education and information for our membership, and even as a lobbying arm for our members’ interests, is vital and essential.”

John Brezack
President and CEO
Dale Medical Products, Inc.

Who needs to hire a paid consultant when you can be a part of a group that has the best minds in the industry to tap into for free?”

Mr. Dick Moorman
V.P. of Distribution Relations
Midmark Corporation

I truly believe that all business professionals, no matter where they are in their career, need a personal board of directors, that is, a group of mentors that can give you honest feedback, provide guidance and challenge when needed. Through HMMC, I have the best of the best on my personal board of directors.

Janis Dezso
Vice President of Sales
Symmetry Surgical Inc.

During my job search in late 2009, I found my new position through an announcement with HMMC.”

Don Lovre
Director, National Accounts Distribution
B Braun Medical Inc.

It’s hard to put a value on the relationships and friends I have gained since being involved with HMMC, and I do believe the industry respects and prefers to do business with those committed to healthcare. Membership at HMMC will continue to provide a resource of peers as well as conferences, which afford us to be smarter and better at what we do.”

Gerry LoDuca
DUKAL Corporation

As a small company representative, I have been able to interact with high-level industry leaders from the distributor community, the provider community and the manufacturing community, which would otherwise have been impossible.” says

Jim Baum
V.P. Marketing & Sales
W.A. Baum, Inc.

I joined HMMC in 2007 when I moved from field sales manager to a marketing director role at B. Braun,”. “It was good for me to join during this transition. The content at the meetings allowed me to gain exposure to a variety of topics that were helpful in my new role and personal growth. In addition, I was able to meet individuals in similar roles and make new connections to share knowledge with.”

Erik Graaf,
Vice President, OPM Field Sales
Braun Medical Inc

I have gained significant knowledge, friendships and camaraderie over the 30 years, which I doubt I would have been able to attain from the medical device companies that I worked for. Being exposed to many of the notable senior leaders in our industry has been an extremely worthwhile and wonderful experience. I have been able to ‘give back’ to this great professional association as a member, officer and board member over the years.”

Jack Addicks
Keystone Consulting Associates, LLC

HMMC has given me the opportunity to meet industry professional I would have never been able to meet anywhere else. HMMC brings healthcare manufacturers together to learn, network and have the important conversations affecting our businesses. Now when I have a question, I turn to a HMMC member for help.”

  • “When I first got into our industry, I looked at who worked best with distribution, and the answer was Midmark and Welch Allyn. They were members of HMMC and always attended the conferences. Two ultimate members of the Distribution Hall of Fame, one from each company told me that they thought HMMC would be good for me, and I would be good for it. I joined and have been a member ever since. Even I ended up in the Distribution Hall of Fame. Is there a correlation there?  You tell me.”
