Inside Sales

NMR lost an invaluable member of our Team in early 2020.  To say that we miss him is an understatement.  Not having Mike around leaves a massive void on our Team and in our hearts.  We sure cherished who he was as a person.  We know that many of you had also worked with Mike.  For many of you, he was the initial voice and face of NMR and developed deep and significant relationships with the medical team he worked with from across the country.  He loved working with each of you.  If you ever had the pleasure of working with Mike, you knew that he was amazing at what he did.  Of course everyone found him to be personable, a smart and hard worker, diligent, and an amazing friend.  He adored his wife Abby and their two boys.  Hardly any time went by where he wasn’t talking about them and sharing stories about his family.  You never questioned his wife and children were a huge part of who he was as a man.  And you were a huge part of our team, too, Mike.  We miss you.
