Question 1 of 35

What can you tell me about our CEO?

"It would be very exciting to come work for Stryker when under the leadership of an experienced individual like Kevin Lobo. His 8 years with Johnson & Johnson meshed into a natural role with Stryker and it's amazing the things that the company has contributed during his time as CEO since 2012. Growing revenue from $8 billion to over $15 billion in that timeframe and making a strong investment into research and development under his leadership make this opportunity so exciting for me."
