We are pleased to announce that Richard Stephens, Hydrix Business Development Manager, has been invited to join the AusMedtech committee (Victorian Branch).
AusMedtech, part of AusBiotech, represents the medical devices and diagnostics sector in Australia, helping facilitate the commercial development of medical technologies while supporting those working within the industry.
Richard joins as a long-standing advocate and supporter of Australian MedTech. He brings more than 30 years of medical device innovation experience, having worked on numerous programs from large IVD instrument platforms to disruptive health and wellness products. A vocal supporter of Australian MedTech innovation and R&D capability, Richard is also highly regarded for his successes in being a conduit between Australian medical technologies and large multinational corporations in the US and EU.
“Joining the AusMedtech committee is great way for me to further contribute to the growth and development of the Australian MedTech community”, said Richard recently. “I’ve spent a significant amount of my career in the US and Europe working with large corporations on MedTech innovation. I believe this experience has given me great insights into the technology development market, latest trends, business strategies, opportunities and pitfalls. I believe this experience can help build service offerings from AusMedtech that will add tangible value to Australian MedTech companies.
A passionate innovator, Richard is keen to further explore ways to engage more closely with the Australian Medtech community, to better understand their needs and wants, and through these interactions help companies grow and succeed in the global medical device market.
