Medical Device Sciences Account Manager, Kristiyana Petrova is an up-and-coming ALKU leader to watch. She debuted as an Intern in our Virtual Training Center; post-graduation, she hit the ground running with her book of business in ALKU’s Medical Device division. Fast forward to today, Kristiyana’s monumental ALKU career shows no signs of slowing down.

Medical Device Changemaker

Having the opportunity to create your group with its own culture, processes, and growth excited Kristiyana. Being able to share that excitement and countless ideas with her counterpart, Maria Zoto, is what sealed the deal for her to start up ALKU’s Medical Device Sciences group. Since the launch, Kristiyana and Maria have been dominating the market in their specialized area and creating names for themselves within Medical Device.

The Behind the Scenes of a Start Up

To quote Kristiyana, “leading a start-up is one of the best decisions I have made at ALKU.” Start-ups are full of ups and downs, taking chances, creating your own luck, and wishing you had eight more hours in a day. Every little win feels so rewarding and celebrated. Their small team has grown to be a second close-knit family for Kristiyana; they hold each other accountable to be the best version of one another, and it’s what leads them to success.

Ideal Leadership Style

Recruiting Manager, Medical Device Quality Assurance, Desiree Drummond-Mayrie is a leader Kristiyana looks up to daily. From her first day at ALKU, Desiree made her feel welcome on the Medical Device Quality Assurance team, inspiring her to be the best version of herself and work hard to reach her goals. Desiree has a smile on her face no matter what and brightens every room she walks into; she is someone who is respected and loved by her team, which is what Kristiyana aspires to be.

The next step in Kristiyana’s ALKU career is getting put on a Roadmap. Her future goals include taking the Medical Device Sciences team to new heights and becoming a Sales Manager! If you’re looking for a company with leadership opportunities, apply to ALKU today!
