Jim Kazmierkoski joined Kalms and Partner Consulting in 2016, bringing 17 years of medical device sales and marketing experience with him, including 12 years at AMS/Endo. His focus is and always has been on the client/customer and he continues to bring this focus to the projects he’s involved with.
His experience runs the gamut from distributor management, to product marketing, to direct sales, to product develpment to physician and rep education. As a global product manager, he was responsible for several product launches and built a new franchise from the ground floor, bringing revenues from zero to $50mm in 3 years. He is fluent in both upstream and downstream marketing and is always attuned to the the voice of the customer, ensuring that it’s integrated into all phases of product commercialization.
One of Jim’s greatest strength’s is the ability to boil down complex ideas into easily understood information. He is as comfortable presenting in front of physicians as he is in front of a board of directors, and he’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get down and dirty in the trenches.
Jim has an MBA from the Carlson School of Management and a BA from the University of Minnesota.
