Samantha JacksonManaging Director
I have the privilege of leading this growing British manufacturing company staffed by a creative and dedicated team whose work makes a real difference to ostomates around the world.
I joined Welland Medical in 2007 as Product Manager for our range of ostomy pouches and accessories. I subsequently took on the role of Sales and Marketing Manager in 2010, Sales and Marketing Director in 2015, and Managing Director in 2020. During this time the company grew more than threefold in production and size, while I became a CMI Chartered Manager, and earned my MBA and an IoD Diploma in Company Direction.
In my role as MD, I oversee the overall company strategy that enables our excellent teams to design and manufacture world-class stoma care products and accessories, develop business in new and existing markets, support an international network of distributors, and develop innovative products and accessories.
All of this is done by working closely with stoma care professionals, distributors, patients and key opinion leaders in stoma care, and would be impossible without the world-class team we have here at Welland Medical.
Dave MargettsOperations Director
In my role I lead the team controlling the material procurement, product scheduling, manufacture and dispatch of Welland Medical products worldwide.
Having worked within the manufacturing industry for over 25 years I joined Welland Medical in 1999 as Operations Manager charged with taking performance, quality and customer service on to new levels by utilising the skills of our most important asset, our staff, by involvement and empowerment.
I joined the Board of Directors as Operations Director where I now work closely with Samantha Jackson, our Managing Director, in formulating strategy and achieving objectives always looking to live up to our mission statement of Innovators in stoma care.
I can best sum up Welland Medical by saying that the company is dedicated to improving the lives of ostomates throughout the world by employing all of our people skills and technologies in the delivery of a world class service.

“Welland Medical products enhance the lives of many around the globe but I believe there is still more to give, more innovations and more improvements to make so we can enable even more people to live unencumbered by their conditions and live life to the maximum. I will drive Welland Medical, and in particular the Finance Department, to provide the infrastructure, advice and resources to make this a reality”.
