Andy has a dual role within Team spanning commercial activities and project management. He leads the team responsible for identifying development opportunities and establishing long term relationships with clients within our life science sector. Andy also plays an active role in projects both as independent reviewer and project manager, ensuring clients’ expectations are met through the delivery of our creative and practical product development service.
“I am lucky enough to have a wide ranging role within Team and have worked on numerous devices. A common theme across all these projects has always been to create the very best solution for the client and the target user population – which is what Team is all about.
Along the way we tackle technical challenges and ensure a logical path through what appears to be a disparate range of requirements. Whatever the challenge it is Team’s job to deliver an ever improving technical service, with creativity and clarity through sound and objective consulting skills. Our focus on the medical sector means that we have an affinity with the demands of the market, which in turn brings significant value to our clients.”
Andy’s background is in industrial design and engineering having a 1st Class degree from Teesside Polytechnic, and a Master of Design from the Royal College of Art, London. With over 20 years’ experience in product development consulting, Andy has encountered a range of technical and user based design challenges across a range of industries. He was Director of the Design Research Centre before coming to Team as Senior Consultant in 2000. He has since managed major medical device projects for international clients, with a particular focus in drug delivery.
