Team Member Spotlight: Steve Seyer, Chief Operating Officer
March 27, 2023
With decades of experience in the medical device industry, working at companies ranging from start-ups to larger manufacturers, the one area Steve had never explored was the consulting side of the business. That curiosity and interest led him to Boulder iQ.
“I was intrigued by the breadth of services Boulder iQ provides, and the variety that comes with that,” he says. “The opportunity to learn every part of the med device start-up business, from product concept to commercialization, is tremendous.”
Steve also cites the reputation of Boulder iQ and of Jim Kasic, founder and chairman, in his decision to join the company. “The level of trust and respect for Jim, locally and in industry, speaks volumes,” he explains. “Some of the happiest and most productive times in my career were when I worked in high-trust, collaborative environments. Here, I have the chance to work in and foster that kind of environment.”
The new COO will focus initially on aligning all of Boulder iQ’s teams, from regulatory and quality to manufacturing and sterilization to engineering. Putting systems in place to increase efficiency across operations, he states, is a priority that will benefit clients and further help them speed products to market.
How he’ll accomplish that is through a philosophy he describes as “treating everyone fairly, but not necessarily the same way.” He works hard to learn what each individual needs to get results, and then provides that support. In that way, he says, people can accomplish stated goals, and grow and develop both personally and professionally. “It’s important to facilitate an environment of trust, support and collaboration across the organization for the benefit of our team members and customers.”
When he’s not working, Steve and his wife enjoy spending time with their two adult children. In Colorado for only a few years, they are finding how much there is to explore in the state, and look forward to plenty of outdoor activities all year round.
