Neil does not hold back in expressing his appreciation for his work history and experiences. Neil articulates, “I’ve had great success and accelerated growth in my career because people believed in me, held me accountable, and invested in me. Spinal Simplicity and the amazing energy surrounding the Minuteman procedure presents an incredible opportunity for me to pay it forward in building the best sales force in the industry.”
