Devices for Dignity Healthcate Technology Co-operative
"Chris was brought in as an Interim Commercial Director for D4D at a time when the D4D HTC organisation was being set up to oversee the links between the clinical elements of the D4DHTC initiative and the business community within the UK healthcare sector.
He was instrumental in developing and maintaining active links with SME’s and large medical companies through effective promotion of the complementary skills offered to industry by the product development and clinical personnel associated with the D4DHTC initiative. This was a challenging period where the D4D team had to prove their value as industry partners in bringing innovations to healthcare providers and patients. Building initiatives that enabled D4DHTC to be in a good position to capitalise on their skills and leverage additional funding through partnerships was key to future sustainability of the HTC project."
