Chris directs Team’s engineering expertise, working with the heads of Team’s development groups to ensure we deliver consistently world-class consultancy services and robust, reliable, user focused and commercially successful device solutions. He is still very much hands-on, especially in areas such as risk management, technical audit, design verification, industrialisation and technical trouble-shooting.
“Working at the heart of a technical consultancy in the healthcare sector is one of the most stimulating and rewarding jobs I can imagine. Working with fantastic colleagues – many of whom are true experts in their fields – to solve problems and deliver effective solutions that can make a difference to people’s lives is something that only the luckiest of us get to do. The people we meet, the challenges we face and the way that we tackle them, plus the unique working atmosphere and environment that we have managed to develop over the years, all combine to make Team very special place to work.”
Chris has more than 15 years’ of experience with Team, developing technologies and devices for healthcare markets. He has successfully brought products to market in technical lead and project management roles, including inhalers, injectors and an award winning ophthalmoscope, and in the process has worked extensively with global suppliers of manufacturing and technical expertise. A named inventor on numerous patents, Chris has a strong track record in delivering innovative and robust solutions to many of Team’s international clients. Chris graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a post-graduate diploma in Design, Manufacture and Management.
