An International Entrepreneur's Long Journey to Success with Gerald White

Episode 16

One of the goals of this podcast is to inspire you with stories of people who overcame adversity, worked hard, played fair, made good decisions, learned from bad decisions, and found a way to succeed. I’m confident that today’s guest will do just that–inspire you to keep pushing forward even when it seems impossible. Welcome back to Mission First People Always! Today’s episode is a fascinating story of a man who found himself where he didn’t plan to be, doing something he hadn’t planned to do and almost failing. Still, by the grace of God and the support of his family, he has become an incredibly successful international entrepreneur. Join the conversation as I speak with Gerald White! Originally from Texas, Gerald began his career as a United States Marine Corps officer and then transitioned into what would become his life’s work: the commercial side of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and therapeutics. He has worked for TAP Pharmaceuticals, American Medical Systems, and AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. Then he started two companies in Southeast Asia: Edge Medical Devices and now CardioSource Medical Equipment.
