the current orthopaedic market is brutal. over the past years 63% of us Hospitals significantly reduced costs. in 6-10% of cases costs per patient were reduced by 12%. there is a negative Marketing trend with a bad impact on new Product Development projects that are less attractive in terms of return on Investments (roi). however, without Innovation it is very difficult to increase the market share and maintaing high prices. i am a seasoned r&d executive who helps companies in turning new ideas into real products and profit increases. in order to improve the roi of the projects i am in charge of, i always focus on emerging niche markets with a huge potential growth. also, i break long term projects into smaller parts to turn short term results to profit. this would reduce the average pay back period. unlike other r&d managers not only i work on technical and scientific aspects, but also i have a broader perspective on business. my approach to new Product Development starts with a business case preparation, goes ahead with Project Management, and ends with the draw up of a strategic Marketing plan to launch the product onto the market. also, i coordinate multi-centres Clinical follow up studies and give speeches at major medical conferences aiming to educate the medical doctors about the edge of the new products. at sintea plustek, i managed several new Product Development projects that obtained the consensus of the most renowned orthopaedic Surgeons. even during this tough global economic situation, my projects led to a 45% growth of the company Intellectual Property asset and a 42% increase in shoulder product Sales. for further details about my cv, please do not hesitate to contact me.
