RALEIGH, N.C., ATLANTA and SINGAPORE—MediPurpose™, a master distributor and manufacturer of medical products, today announced Reginald A. Carr as its new vice president of sales.
With nearly two decades of experience in medical product sales and marketing, Carr will be a key contributor to the company's recent medical product sales and customer service team reorganization, said MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi.

"I have every confidence in Reggie's ability to lead our new customer service team."

I foresee tremendous growth for the company's current and future medical product portfolio, and I'm eager to contribute to that success."
Carr will be based in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he will operate within MediPurpose's "virtual office" environment, which enables the company to acquire top talent, regardless of geography.
