Having the passion to pursue something that you love says a lot about who you truly are. Having the influence over a large majority of people displays that you have a quality that many people admire. Having perseverance to push through barriers solidifies your ambition. All of these fine qualities are embodied by a man named Clay Siegall, and he uses the qualities to better mankind. Clay Siegall is a very accomplished doctor and scientist. He has worked with the likes of the National Cancer Institute and has worked with the National Institute of Health. Siegall is the co-founder for a leading cancer-research organization that’s known as Seattle Genetics. This organization has been around since the late 1990s, and it has dramatically grown in size, in personnel and influence.
Being the CEO of a billion dollar organization isn’t easy. Between the years of 1999 -2000, this small biotech company was having a hard time advancing in this demanding field. The company was brand new, and it only had just a few staff members. Dr. Siegall had to find a way to compete with the much larger organizations in this field without losing capital. By bringing in a savvy sales team, Seattle Genetics was able to publicize its extraordinary medications to the public. Before too long, this exceptional team was securing seven-figure deals on a regular basis. It took Seattle Genetics close to a decade to see huge returns in capital, but Dr. Siegall’s perseverance has certainly paid-off to the highest degree.
Just over the past five years, Seattle Genetics’ stock has roughly tripled. Yes, that’s right! The company’s savvy sales staff is now the face of the business. It doesn’t get much better than this, but who knows what Dr. Clay Siegall and Seattle Genetics will do next.
