Welland Board Update

We are pleased to announce that Sarah Duckworth, formally Head of Engineering has joined the Welland Medical board as Operations and Engineering Director.

Sarah joined Welland with a wealth of knowledge and experience behind her. We caught up with her to discuss her new venture and time at Welland.

“I joined Welland Medical in 2020 as Head of Engineering and have been focused on developing and implementing a technology strategy, aimed at improving efficiency and capability of our production equipment. At the start of 2022 I was invited to join the board as Operations and Engineering Director.

With over 18 years of experience in the medical device industry, predominantly in Engineering and Operations, I’m passionate about driving performance to deliver excellent quality and innovation to our customers. I will be focused on operational effectiveness and continue to build and develop our continuous improvement culture.

My passion for improvement also drives my hobbies at home, including a newfound enthusiasm for restoring and rehoming vintage folding campers. I also love spending time outdoors, skiing in the winter and paddleboarding around the English coast through the summer months.

I feel very privileged to use my skills and knowledge to support development and delivery of stoma care products, and the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of so many customers.”

We look forward to having Sarah as part of the Welland board and wish her all the best in her new role!
