Med-Tech CEOs turn passion into mission with boot camp for vets

Abiomed CEO Michael Minogue, along with AdvaMed and other medical device company CEOs launch the MedTech Veteran Program for Returning Heroes, a boot camp for military veterans and wounded warriors.

It's not surprising that Abiomed (NSDQ:ABMD) CEO Michael Minogue supports the troops. After all, the West Point grad is a former airborne infantry platoon leader and a Desert Storm veteran.

It is, however, a little surprising just how much time, energy and passion Minogue devotes to supporting those troops, given his full-time gig at the helm of a $125 million medical device company, which just achieved profitability for the first time in its 31-year history – and his other full-time gig, as a father of 5 who just welcomed a newborn baby boy to the world.

But Minogue, 46, is driven by a passion to help service members get a better shake when it comes to finding a job after their service is done. It's a mission he says was borne of the frustrations he hears about campaigning for veterans' organizations such as Wounded Warriors and The Mission Continues.
