Nai Kanell, MedTrainer CMO

LAS VEGAS, March 8, 2024Chief Marketing Officer Nai Kanell was recently honored by Utah Business Magazine as one of 40 professionals who are “changing Utah’s business landscape in big ways — all before reaching the age of 40.”

Each year, Utah Business Magazine recognizes 40 professionals under age 40 for demonstrating exceptional leadership, innovation, and impact within their respective industries and communities. As a Utah resident who has made incredible contributions throughout her career, Nai was a shoo-in for the award.

“Nai was able to come in and jump-start our marketing department with a fresh view of modern marketing and has accelerated professionally as one of the most ambitious executives I have had the opportunity to work with,” said MedTrainer CEO Steve Gallion. “When she proposed rebranding MedTrainer and our website, I was skeptical, but she was able to articulate the project, the reasons why, and delivered amazing results in a very short timeline.

Aside from her focus on driving marketing excellence, her contribution to the company’s organizational health objectives and culture is another perpetual initiative, Gallion said. “Outside of marketing, she helped create core values, define what they mean, and how we communicate what it means to be a part of MedTrainer. She is a prime example of how an executive should operate.”

“It’s such an honor to be recognized with such an outstanding group of Utah professionals,” Nai said. “As a first-generation refugee, I never anticipated that I would one day be a CMO. Fate brought me into the B2B side of marketing, and my career evolved from there.”

The most rewarding part of her job is creating win-win situations at home and at work, Kanell shared. She relishes solving problems in ways that make everyone happy and excited about better outcomes.

“At MedTrainer, helping healthcare administrators discover better ways to get manual work done is exciting,” she said. “I get to experience how our technology delights our customers. This is a win-win for MedTrainer because I’m helping to grow the company at the same time.”
