Twitter: Medtronic CEO Ishrak's mission in 140 characters or less
Medtronic CEO Omar Ishrak takes to Twitter in answering the call to protect and spread company founder Earl Bakken's message of corporate citizenship and public good around the world.
When former Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) CEO William Hawkins passed the torch to Omar Ishrak last year, he charged him with a mission - to protect company founder Earl Bakken's message of corporate citizenship and public good and share it with the world.
Ishrak has certainly taken that to heart, spending his days jet-setting around the world (Bangladesh, Spain and Mumbai in the last month alone) - and he's been Tweeting all the while.
Although things have been quiet for the med-tech titan as of late (Medtronic's last acquisitions were announced July 7, 2011, about 3 weeks after Ishrak took office, and closed later that year), Ishrak's been taking to Twitter to share Medtronic's mission with his more than 1,500 followers.
