Larry S. Findleton began his career in the medical field as a Navy Corpsman, attached to the US Marines. He then became one of the country's first Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (RDMS) performing clinical non-invasive diagnostic exams using Cardiac, Abdominal, and OB/GYN ultrasound. His first commercial endeavor was a successful mobile Ultrasound service, based in Phoenix, Arizona where he took delivery of one of the first "real-time" scanners, a technology that is now the industry standard. He became the manufacturer's top sales representative and spent the next 25 years managing and training sales teams for Advanced Technology Laboratories, Diasonics/Vingmed, and G.E Medical. He switched careers into Nuclear Medicine and became the VP of Sales for the first mobile PET (Positron Emission Tomography) service where he signed over 35 contracts in the Western United States and was again the company's top producer. His innovation and creativity while focused on the patient helped him to create the first "virtual PET Center" in Portland, Oregon by successfully joining together nine competitive hospitals into a consortium that shared one mobile scanner and still provided daily access for each of them. Remote hospitals also needed service so he created the "techless solution". Adventist Hospital operates eight hospitals that are in a 267 mile route, this required a successful joint venture. Whatever it took to provide the service; he successfully created contracts that were mutually beneficial.

Rob Schumacher began in the medical field 20 years ago when he got his training at Loma Linda University and University of California at Los Angeles. He has served as a nuclear medicine technologist, PET technologist, Clinical Instructor of Nuclear Medicine and Instructor of Radiation Safety. He also has been the Vice President of Operations, Radiation Safety Officer and Chief Technology Officer for the first provider of mobile positron emission tomography (PET) services. At that company Mr. Schumacher secured accreditation from the Joint Commission on Health Care Organizations (JCAHO), a first for a provider of mobile PET. He also obtained radioactive materials licenses in 27 states and managed operations for more than 40 accounts including 10 mobile units, and a fixed location with a cyclotron. Over the last 5 years he has worked extensively to build fixed imaging centers and focused on the transition from mobile to fixed operations. He has consulted for more than 20 imaging centers in the areas of practice management, protocols and patient flow, compliance, and radiation safety. He has trained more than 50 technologists in nuclear medicine and PET; and continues to lecture to radiologists, oncologists, cardiologists, technologists, and nurses on PET, radiation safety, and compliance with ICANL, ACR, JCAHO, and departments of health for various states. He holds a BS degree in Biology from the University of California at Riverside and professional certificates and registries in nuclear medicine. He is currently Vice President of Advanced Molecular Imaging, LLC.
After attending Western Michigan University, Christopher W Walker began his medical industry career with Physio Control where he was a top 5 performer in his first year selling defibrillators and portable vital sign monitors to Southern State’s EMS and hospital markets. Chris was then recruited by Diasonics, where once again earned top 5 sales honors selling general, OB/GYN and vascular applications into the Southern States. He was then recruited by Advanced Technologies (ATL) where he was ATL’s top vascular sales specialist selling into the Southern California market. Chris was then transferred to ATL’s cardiology division where he was again a top rep selling into the Southern and Central Valley California markets until ATL temporarily shut down its cardiology division in 1991.
Choosing severance over transfer to ATL’s radiology division, Mr Walker founded Cardio-Vascular Sales (CVS) in 1992 selling refurbished ultrasound system and parts into the US cardiology office market. He also distributed a DICOM PACS for which he created its US brand and personally configured its structured reporting templates, menus and phrasings. With vision, strategy, and $50,000 seed capital, Chris grew CVS to $9M sales with 25 full time employees/contractors. He managed growth funding, processes development, supply chain, as well as recruiting/hiring. Chris directed operations, sales, sales training and all aspects of marketing. He also supervised the developed of CVS’ customized network CRM system which featured relational Quick Books Pro accounting and bar code inventory modules supporting mainframe, parts and service sales that passed ISO gap inspection.
In 2008 Mr Walker sold his DICOM PACS structured reporting asset to Kardia Health Systems. Chris joined Kardia where he last served as VP of Sales.
Chris is a creative market strategist who excels at identifying, structuring and pitching value propositions. Chris is adept at managing multi-million dollar sale quotas and is charged with the responsibility of developing and managing AlderMed’s distribution channels.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in marketing from SDSU, Drew spent the first half of his career working with Southern California-based tech firms in the roles of product marketing, technical sales training, channel management, trade show development and marketing communications. Mr. Wilkens traveled the country providing educational support and product demonstration to a variety of Fortune 500 clients including, General Motors, Dow Chemical, Goldman Sachs, U.S. Army, Fermi National Labs, Princeton University, Ford Motor Company, Digital Equipment, Polaroid as well as the "big eight" accounting firms of that era.
Drew's career took him from industrial marketing to consumer marketing as he developed and managed a small chain of specialty retail stores. As an early adopter in online sales and marketing, Mr. Wilkens saw the small business brick and mortar portion of his retail business shrink and the internet portion quickly out pace all others. His experience was recognized by other as he was drawn to e-commerce consulting, helping other technical and non-technical companies expand their online footprint. Specializing in B2C marketing, SEO analytics, email campaigning and social media, Drew brings his combination of technical marketing experience with a strong understanding of consumer marketing to AlderMed.
