40 Under 40: Paul Medeiros

Medeiros is the youngest CEO out of the more than 70 Easter Seals affiliates worldwide. He rose through the ranks over 14 years, starting as an occupational therapist. In his previous position as vice president of rehabilitation, he grew income by 25 percent over six years.

As a father of three girls, he recognizes the importance of work-life balance and has established that culture at Easter Seals. As a second-degree Taekwondo black belt, he carries over the martial arts beliefs of respect, humility, perseverance, self-control, and honesty to his management style.

Whose career would you like to emulate? Kirk Joslin, my predecessor. He balanced the bottom line while never deviating from the mission.

What should older generations know about up-and-coming workforce? We are not afraid to try new things to achieve success.

Where do you get your motivation? Success for my organization means people can live, learn, work and play. It is easy to get excited about that!

Why do you work in Central Massachusetts? There is a big opportunity to make a difference. There may be less attention, but that just means there are more unmet needs.
