Owen Mumford Ltd has appointed Richard Thomas to the position of Sales & Marketing Director. As a member of the Executive Management Team, Richard will report directly to Jarl Severn, the Managing Director and will be responsible for leading the Group’s Sales & Marketing function.
Prior to joining Owen Mumford, Richard was based in the US with Smiths Medical where he held the position of Vice President, Business Integration with a specific remit for China. Previously, he has held the roles of Vice President of U.S and Latin America Sales, Vice President of Global Diabetes and Marketing Director for Smiths Medical International. It is his extensive knowledge and experience in both medical devices and this particular clinical area that make him perfectly placed to take on this new role with Owen Mumford Ltd, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of specialist medical devices.
Richard said of his new appointment:
“This is a very exciting time to join what is without doubt, a successful and well-established British company with a distinctly global perspective. We already have an excellent portfolio of innovative medical devices and to my mind there has never been a better time to work in this therapy sector, particularly with the dramatic increase in the number of people being diagnosed with diabetes. Owen Mumford offers first class medical solutions and I intend to play my part in helping the company expand in seeking new business opportunities and reaching out to new geographical areas ultimately to improve even more people’s lives across the globe. I am looking forward to my sales and marketing role and to see how the company can continue to serve its existing customer base as well as develop new markets in emerging economies.”
Jarl Severn, Managing Director said:
“We are very pleased Richard has joined us and feel certain his high calibre business experience and knowledge will play a critical part in helping steer Owen Mumford towards its 2020 VISION as we aim to treble our annual turnover by 2020. Richard has the expertise to significantly develop our sales and marketing, helping to put Owen Mumford in an even stronger position within this highly competitive medical sector during challenging economic times. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Adam, the outgoing Sales & Marketing Director, for everything he achieved and know that he will continue to make an invaluable contribution to the company in his new role.”
Adam Mumford, the former Sales & Marketing Director will assume the role of Chairman of Owen Mumford Holdings, previously held by his father John and will continue to support the group as a Director of Owen Mumford Ltd.
