ABOUT JEREMY CAGE

Jeremy is an optimistic and energetic leader with a 30 year track record of delivering profitable business growth - combining his skills in Marketing, Innovation, Strategy, and General Management with the kind of courage and spirit of adventure that took him and his family on a sailing voyage around the world in 2007 and 2008.  

He spent the first 16 years of his career at Procter&Gamble.  He spent 10 years at PepsiCo – as Chief Marketing Officer of the International Foods business and Senior Vice President of the Global Snacks business.  He was subsequently appointed CEO of a leading Lighting Technology company called the Lighting Science Group.

He has just published his first book “All Dreams on Deck – Charting the course for your life and Work”.   Here is what Katie Couric had to say about it:

“Jeremy Cage has written a great book that everyone who thinks about how to better balance work–life issues would benefit from reading. Everything starts with a dream—but Jeremy really shows us how to get started on making these dreams come to life. Generalities won’t get it done; it requires very specific charting and execution. Just as Jeremy navigated his way across oceans, he’s also shown us how we can better navigate life’s personal and professional challenges. I’m giving my daughters copies of his book, and I hope they get as much out of Jeremy’s insights as I did.”


Finally - Jeremy brings a unique global perspective to his work, as he is tri-lingual, and has lived and worked in Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, the UK, Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico and the US.

Melissa Gonzales, Managing Director of Medela USA business unit, the largest of the Medela group joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care and Health News Channels.

Medela concentrates on two business units: "Human Milk" and "Healthcare". The “Human Milk” division is leading in the development and production of breast milk feeding products, the "Healthcare" division provides progressive solutions that make it easier for healthcare professionals to care for their patients.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Melissa Gonzales discuss the following:

  • I understand you also has a nursing background which I am sure is quite helpful for your role at Medela.
  • I didn’t realize that Medela had products beyond the Breast Feeding range. Tell me a little bit about your Healthcare division.
  • How does Medela help these patients with their diabetic ulcers?
  • So NPWT helps these patients’ wounds heal more quickly?  What’s different about your product?
  • So to clarify, you have a product which provides the reliability of normal NPWT but yet provides the convenience of a personal device?
  • Let`s get into the details of your portfolio again - you offer a "classical" re-usable pump as well, correct?
  • Sounds all quite practical to me. Here comes to my mind: if everything is so easy… can I change the wound dressing on my own as a patient?
  • Are there really synergies between the Human Milk and the Healthcare segment?
