The expansion of talent is a reflection of the company’s rapid growth curve and strong financial performance throughout the unprecedented challenges of 2020. “While the COVID pandemic has lowered elective case volume across the industry, CoreLink has continued to rapidly grow customers, strengthen internal processes, and invest in new product development, and we felt this was the perfect time to expand rather than contract our Sales Management Team. This is a great opportunity to increase market share in a rapidly evolving market,” Derek Kuyper, Vice President.
