Kevin is currently the CEO of Medilink Yorkshire & Humber, CEO of Medilink North West, and International Executive for Medilink UK. He has developed and currently leads a dedicated team of international specialists that service both Medilink UK members and the Department for International Trade (DIT), the UK Government agency for Trade and Inward Investment. This team works in partnership with DIT to deliver international trade services regionally and also to deliver UK pavilions and missions on behalf of DIT in territories across the world e.g. Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Brazil.

Much of Kevin’s work internationally has related to technology transfer and he is passionate in promoting alternative market entry strategies for key international growth markets (China, India and Brazil) based on early stage partnership. He has signed MOUs for cooperation and exchange in trade, technology transfer and R&D with China and Brazil’s largest medical device trade associations.
