Michael Levison earned a BS degree in dietetics from Bowling Green State University. Soon after graduation he was asked by his family to take over his grandfather’s scrap metal business because his grandfather was ailing. It was there that Michael learned the value of hard work. He realized his desire to follow his dreams and sold the business and moved to Pittsburgh for a professional internship with Marriott Healthcare and became a licensed registered dietitian. It was with Marriott Healthcare that he learned the hospital system and the value of teamwork between physicians and hospital administrators. Michael always gravitated towards working with cardiologists and their patients and found it rewarding to help them learn the importance of good nutrition. Michael continued with Marriott Healthcare in Chicago as a cardiac dietitian until an opportunity to help a colleague manage and grow his dietetic consulting business brought him back home to the Toledo area.
Michael progressed by launching his medical sales career with Mediq Mobile X-ray & EKG. He gained management skills and learned the importance of customer service during his time with Mediq Mobile X-ray & EKG. Michael was then offered an opportunity to join Pacesetter as a technical service representative; this soon expanded into a sales role while working on his IHBRE certification and eventually helping run operations in the absence of the president who was moving towards retirement. Michael was instrumental in growing the business to over 40MM in sales, which triggered one of the largest buyouts of St. Jude Medical history. Michael then became a cardiac rhythm management sales representative for St Jude. Michael assisted in thousands of cardiac device implants during his tenure at St Jude.
Michael was then approached by a start up EP robotics company to run the Great Lakes area. He was able to work with the same EP doctors to reduce their radiation exposure by using the robotics system and was able to expand his network and work in top centers such as The Cleveland Clinic and The Ohio State University.
Michael resides in the Toledo area with Jill and their blended family. They enjoy spending time with their six children. Visiting them in college, attending high school events, and running after their newest addition to the family, a two year old son, keeps everyone busy.
