Matt Cornelius Promoted to Sales Manager, Pharmaceutical TE&V

April 13, 2023


Since day one, Matt has led by example and is one of the hardest workers in the room. He always strives to be the best version of himself while building his team up simultaneously. As a result, he is incredibly driven and constantly sets the tone for his team and those around him.  

Throughout his career, he has reached new heights and helped his team grow while on his roadmap to management. He is an amazing leader who does what is best for his employees. In addition, he is incredibly reliable and motivated.  

In his new role, Matt will build Account Managers and implement and improve sales strategy across his group and the brand.  

Congratulations, Matt! We can’t wait to see all you accomplish in this new role! 

“This day has been long awaited! I’m sure many will hear about this promotion and think, Matt? THE Matt Cornelius? CORN? I thought he was already a manager… Well, that’s because once he received his Roadmap, Matt absolutely dove head-on into being a leader for his team and never looked back. I know I can speak for many when I say this promotion is extremely well deserved. He has faced many highs and lows up until this point but has remained extremely level-headed and does what’s best for his people. When I was offered the opportunity to manage the other side of the desk, one of the most exciting draws was being able to work with Matt. He has given it his all since day one as an Intern. I know he will continue to do so as the Sales Manager of Pharma TE&V. Congratulations to one of the most driven and dependable people I’ve had the pleasure of working with at this company! I cannot wait to see what the future brings you. Cheers to you, Matt!” – Senior Sales Manager, Pharmaceutical, Meg McCarthy 

“Cornelius! Talk about a well-deserved promotion… When discussing a guy who truly practices what he preaches, I think of Matt. Since the day he started (SAP Recruiting Intern) to where he is now, he is consistently the first in the office and the last out. He has a way of elevating everyone else around him just with his work ethic. Since spearheading Pharma TE&V, he has helped elevate the group to new heights all while developing a group of established Account Managers alongside him. Matt is reliable as an Account Manager and, more importantly, a leader. This is one of those promotions where you almost think they have already been promoted for months, which is exactly what we look for! I can’t wait to see where you can take this group because I know you are just getting started. Congratulations on the promo, my guy – TEV is in good hands. – Recruiting Director, Pharmaceutical, Nate Hoffman 

“Pretty much since the day Matt started, I never doubted I’d be writing a quote for his promotion to Pharma Sales Manager; it was just a matter of when. True leaders stand out when things aren’t going well, and Matt had a variety of difficult situations that were out of his control during his first year. The job was a tough start, but he never let it bother him. He trusted the process, stayed positive, and worked as hard as anyone I’ve seen. Part of what makes Matt such a strong leader is how much ownership he takes of anything put on his plate, small or large; you know he will handle it. But the most impressive thing about him is his relentless drive to improve. He goes out of his way to get feedback and figure out what he can improve on. My only knock on Matt is his putting, but we will keep working on that! Congrats Matt!” – Sales Director, Pharmaceutical, Charlie Nevejans
