Former Smiths Medical vice president joins Owen Mumford
Diabetes device manufacturer, Owen Mumford, has appointed Richard Thomas as its new sales and marketing director.
As a member of the executive management team, Thomas will report directly to managing director, Jarl Severn, and will be responsible for leading the sales and marketing function across the group.
Prior to joining the firm, he was based in the US with Smiths Medical, where he held the position of vice president for business integration, with a specific remit for China. Previously, he held the roles of vice president of US and Latin America sales, vice president of global diabetes, and marketing director for Smiths Medical International.
He 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.”
