Leigh Vosseller, chief financial officer and executive vice president at Tandem Diabetes Care, was recognized in the Medical Design & Outsourcing November 2018 Special Edition: Women in Medtech! It’s about time we featured this important person behind our pump. We caught up with her about her work.
Q. What brought you to Tandem? What keeps you at Tandem?
The people! I was incredibly excited to learn that there was an opportunity for me at Tandem to reconnect with the best and brightest colleagues from a former company. I knew the kind of culture those folks had built in the past and was excited to have the opportunity to be part of that team and that type of environment again. Even now that we have grown substantially since I began (~4X the number of employees), it’s awesome to see that the culture has remained the same.
I have the opportunity on a regular basis to tell the story of our organization to investors and financial analysts who are incredibly excited about our future as a company. Quite frequently, I learn that many of them have a personal connection to diabetes, and they are champions from more than just a business or financial perspective. It is a constant reminder of the good that we are doing.
All of our employees have a passion for our product and how it helps to change people’s lives every single day. It makes a person want to go to work, as opposed to feeling like they have to go to work. We take great care to hire people who are like-minded in our mission.
We are committed to our customers and changing their lives for the better.
Congratulations on your recognition, Leigh. We appreciate you!
