Supporting Growth in the Medical Devices Sector

Invibio, a subsidiary of the FTSE listed Victrex Group, supplies biomaterial solutions used in the manufacture of spinal, orthopaedic and other medical implants. In support of the the ongoing growth of the business, the company required a highly commercial Operations Director to harness the talents of a diverse team including quality, product development, engineering and supply chain.

We undertook an extensive search of the specialist plastics and medical devices sector in order to identify candidates with the right balance of leadership, technical, operations, commercial and strategic capability, and we supplemented this search with advertising.  We were able to field a strong shortlist of candidates all of whom had outstanding pedigree, and yet each of whom brought something different to the role.

The successful candidate offered a unique combination of product development, manufacturing and general management experience gained across several blue chip environments, and had previously worked at senior level within the medical devices sector.  His background will enable him to work seamlessly with Invibio’s sales and marketing teams to anticipate the changing demands of the marketplace, whilst translating customer needs into an optimal operations strategy for the business.
