We are the makers of possible: A love for Business and Science led to BD
Jimmy Nasrallah’s friend helped shaped his career choice. He had his sights on becoming a doctor, but after hearing about the challenges that came with serving remote regions of Lebanon, Jimmy carved out a different path and has never looked back.
“Back at university, I was in the pre-med program. But every time I’d speak with my friend who is a doctor, he would share how difficult it was to get the right products to treat his patients. So, if he could diagnose his patients perfectly but not treat them due to the lack of products and equipment, then what really was the point of being a healthcare provider and not being able to provide a full solution?” explained Jimmy. “He helped me understand there were other roles that could still have a positive impact on patients.”
Advancing the World of HealthTM
As a Product Specialist serving the BD Interventional (BDI) Surgery Business Unit in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jimmy enjoys his position. On an average day, he is busy educating as many doctors and healthcare professionals as possible – oftentimes right in the Operating Room with them.
“The product that I help educate and sell is called AristaTM Absorbable Hemostat. It is a plant-based surgical hemostatic powder that helps stop the bleeding during surgical procedures,” said Jimmy. “I enjoy teaching clients about AristaTM AH because it’s such a unique solution. It’s also fairly new to the Middle East Region so we are working hard to build a market for it.”
BD = People, Possibilities, and Purpose
Just like Jimmy, every BD individual plays a crucial role in developing transformative solutions that impact lives around the globe. He plans on remaining with the company for a host of reasons, including: Growth, Recognition, and Stability.
“Although BD is a very large, multi-national company, there is so much growth here. Whether it’s one of our business verticals or elsewhere, there is a lot of growth to pursue with BD. With regard to recognition, the more you contribute, the more visibility you get and the more you are rewarded, which is very motivating for me personally,” said Jimmy. “Lastly, the company has been around for more than 125 years, so our senior leaders have shown that we are doing something right with our business model to continue to grow and flourish like we have, which is remarkable, to say the least.”
