Ryan Hawk Interviews CoverMyMeds Executives, Matt Scantland & Vicki Muscarella

On June 19th, our team member Ryan Hawk, host of The Learning Leader Show, interviewed top CoverMyMeds executives, Matt Scantland & Vicki Muscarella. This engaging discussion was taped live in front of many business leaders in the Columbus area.

"We started with what culture isn't." Vicki shares why beer taps and kayaks are the reflection of the culture, but not the culture itself.  Hear more about how they've built an incredible culture, recruited and retained top talent and built a company that has built a tremendous reputation in a short period of time.
