John Sasen, Sr., EVP & CMO of PSS World Medical, passed away on Tuesday, February 26, 2013. Sasen’s career in healthcare spanned more than forty years beginning with Clay Adams, a division of BD, where he eventually became VP of Sales, Marketing & Distributor Relations. After 20 years, Sasen joined PSS, where he spent the last 22 years in a variety of executive leadership positions. He was active in many industry organizations and initiatives, and was quick to share his expertise with anyone in need. John’s insights, vision, wisdom, and friendship have been gifts he bestowed unselfishly on so many in our industry. He was inducted into the Medical Distribution Hall of Fame in 2009.
