40 Years page

When John Abele and Pete Nicholas collaborated to establish Boston Scientific 40 years ago, they had a shared “vision to create new markets for less-invasive medicine and spread the word about Medi-Tech products.” Today, the company they founded is a global medical technology leader that provides a broad range of high-performance solutions to address unmet patient needs. From building out our strategy to building a diverse workforce, the future of Boston Scientific is brimming with possibilities. In the final installment of this campaign celebrating the 40th anniversary of Boston Scientific, we invited our employees to share their thoughts on the next 40 years and beyond by asking when you think about the future of Boston Scientific, what are you most excited about?

I’m also excited about our 10/20/40 diversity goals to accelerate women and people of color into leadership roles, positioning Boston Scientific to be a leader in inclusion.”   ​
