Twenty-two years ago, where most people saw unused supplies collecting dust, Randy Ware, CEO and Founder of WestCMR, LLC, saw an opportunity to help hospitals and help the world at the same time. After selling medical devices throughout the state of Florida in the late 1990s, Ware discovered a pattern of systemic waste throughout most of the healthcare facilities he visited. The story behind WestCMR reflects the power of persistence and the importance of creating your own opportunities.
“Initially as an undergraduate student at Stetson University I thought I wanted to be a CPA, but it didn’t take long for me to realize I wasn’t the type to be locked to a desk all day,” Ware said. “My career started as a sales rep for a payroll processing company based out of Rochester, NY. I oversaw the Tampa Bay and Orlando markets and, after two and a half years, I was recruited to work for ADP. I spent three great years with ADP, before my life took a turn.”
