In addition to ensuring the board and its committees conform to the highest standards of corporate governance, Jerry’s primary responsibility is supporting and advising Dan as the Chief Executive.
“It was my privilege to lead Team for 21 years. When I took over in 1991 we decided to create a successful company which focussed not only on the medical market but on people – its clients, suppliers and staff. I’m driven by the desire to develop technologies and products which save or improve lives and I get a real buzz when I see the results of the team’s efforts come to fruition. I work with some of the most talented people in the world of medical device development and as a result, every day is exciting and rewarding.
A new and dynamic executive group now drives the company forward, several of whom joined Team as recent graduates. They are all extraordinarily capable and it is a pleasure to see them grow still further as Team goes from strength to strength.
Clients repeatedly tell me that the reason they come to Team is not only the evident capability but that the culture of the company enables the building of strong, open and trusting working relationships. I’m intensely proud of the group of people collectively known as ‘Team’!”
