Member Endorsements

"As an early member of the council I have had the good fortune to participate in and enjoy the growth and evolution of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council. The Council provides an outstanding forum for staying current on the challenges facing our industry, exposure to best practices, access to supply chain thought leaders and engagement with the full business spectrum inclusive of healthcare providers and payers. The networking element is significant as well, as a community we are able to leverage each other to get prompt answers, insights and feedback. The council is a stimulant to help me to advance my business while also providing a developmental opportunity for the next level leaders I encourage to participate from my team."

"We have found value in our membership with the Medical Device Supply Chain Council.  The Council provides opportunities to network with highly talented supply chain professionals within the industry as well as educational meetings that are current and relevant to challenges that we face.  I encourage Supply Chain professionals from within the Medical Device industry to become active members so that they can leverage the knowledge that the Council has to offer."

"The Medical Device Supply Chain Council has been a great opportunity to get caught up on the state of the art within this industry. The meetings are extremely well planned with top notch presenters who bring timely and relevant information to the attendees. The Council also provides an excellent opportunity to network with an impressive group of people who manage supply chain practices at leading global medical device companies. It is always a challenge to find time to participate in groups like this, but the Medical Device Supply Chain Council is certainly a worthwhile use of my time."

“Owens & Minor's  membership in the Medical Device Supply Chain Council has been an excellent opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the challenges facing our manufacturer customers. The healthcare supply chain is complex and all members are faced with the need to improve efficiencies, as well as, reduce cost. As such, getting together in a setting offsite to bring focus to the greatest opportunities, working in a collaborative cross-industry way, is a great way to develop corporate strategy that is aligned with market needs. Owens & Minor has utilized this experience to evolve from our industry leading position as a traditional healthcare distributor to a global logistics company focused on partnering with manufacturers to provide third party logistics that leverage our existing warehousing and transportation capabilities."


Geoff Marlatt
Senior Vice President
Owens & Minor

 

"There is a tremendous value in networking with other supply chain leaders on issues and challenges specific to the Medical Device industry. I value the open honest way the council tackles these issues and leverages the strengths each member brings to the table. Council members agree on pressing issues and agenda items for the meetings.  Then the combination of sharing best-in-class solutions to these issues in addition to input from industry subject matter experts provides an enormous value.  Having been in the medical device industry for over 25 years, I have not found a resource as valuable and informational as the Medical Device Supply Chain Council."

"Over the past 7 years Terso has found great value in being a sponsor of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council. At each meeting we gain valuable insight into the key opportunities, challenges and best practices within this market segment. The knowledge that we gain during these discussions enables Terso to provide more industry focused solutions and consultation to our clients."

I have been an active member of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council for about ten years. Supply Chain executives have very limited time to expand their peer network and learn best practices, so that is why the Council has proven to be so valuable to all the members. The Council membership is large enough to represent a good cross section of the medical device industry while also being small enough to allow for true peer to peer interactions. The Council’s agendas are always fresh and relevant to issues I deal with on a daily basis, but also provide opportunities to think more strategically and longer term. I recommend you consider membership in the Medical Device SC Council.”

"Edwards Lifesciences has been a member of the Council since its early days and I personally have participated for about 8 of my 10 years at Edwards. I find it an invaluable way to stay on top of industry developments and to network and discuss key industry topics with my peers at other leading Med Device companies. One great way to guage the value of the council and the relationships that are formed there, is to see many members transition from one Med Device company to another and yet continue to return to the council, many times bringing their new company into the membership. I come away from each bi-annual meeting with a refreshed perspective and motivation and I periodically check in with Kevin and my peers on the Council for input and discussion on supply chain topics. I highly recommend to any Med Device Supply Chain leader to participate in the Council, you will wish you had found it earlier."
