Safeguard Medical is excited to welcome Mark J. Peters to our leadership team as Vice President of Sales, North America-Public Access. Mark brings over a decade of experience in the medical device industry, including his most recent role as General Manager of School Health Corporation, the largest provider of medical supplies to the Education market in the U.S. Prior to School Health, Mark spent nearly 10 years in multiple roles at Cardiac Science Corporation. Advancing from an individual contributor to managing multiple teams and business units, including scaling distribution efforts nationally, Mark’s career at Cardiac Science thrived during tumultuous times. Through many challenges, Mark helped lead the company to a successful acquisition by a strategic buyer in July 2019, exiting with the leadership team at the end of 2019.
Mark earned his Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree from the Fox School of Business at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, concentrating in a dual-major of Entrepreneurship and Marketing. He currently serves on the board of directors for Parent Heart Watch, a platform for the largest group of families who have lost children to sudden cardiac arrest. Mark is also a sudden cardiac arrest survivor himself (2009) and lost his close childhood friend to cardiac arrest (2000).
At Safeguard, Mark will lead the North American commercial sales efforts in non-Military/Federal Government verticals. This includes building and driving our go-to-market strategy, recruiting and scaling our commercial team across North America, and leading the story of Safeguard’s vision to the market.
