Steve joined our commercial team in 2019 to help expand our work in the medtech space. With a particular focus on high risk devices, his strategic business skills and background in engineering and biotechnology gives him an aptitude for both managing technical projects and developing business opportunities.
“It’s a privilege to be able to help clients visualise, develop and commercialise exciting new medical products. In addition to meeting the fundamental requirements of safety and efficacy, the key is to deliver the best possible experience for patients and users and an attractive return on investment for shareholders. Working at Team provides the opportunity to do this, helping clients from the smallest of start-ups to the biggest of blue-chips.”
“Fundamentally, Team’s specialism is delivering the ‘wow’ factor in the highly regulated medical product space. There is a unique depth and breadth of experience that exists at Team; I love the fact that I can quickly assemble highly creative, multidisciplinary design and development teams who are not just grounded in regulatory compliance, but who also understand commercial reality. As an example, I might include UX/UI/HF experts (fresh back from FDA meetings helping clients secure FDA approval) with design for manufacture (DFM) expertise from specialists who have previously taken products from pilot production to serial production volumes of over 10 m units per annum. I truly believe that Team offers world class expertise at every stage of the medical product development lifecycle.”
Prior to joining Team, Steve worked for various leading technology consultancies in Cambridge, helping pharmaceutical, biotechnology and surgical device companies recognise, understand and act on opportunities for new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. He most recently founded and led high tech start-up PlaqueTec, developing a Class III intracoronary catheter to detect coronary biomarkers to better predict heart disease. Steve is a chartered engineer, with a first class degree in mechanical engineering and PhD in biomedical engineering from Queen Mary University of London.
