Sample Projects & Case Studies

Distribution and Channel Management



Smith & Nephew plc is a publically traded company founded in 1856 and headquartered in London. The company develops, manufactures, markets, and sells medical devices worldwide and operates in three segments: Orthopedics, Endoscopy, and Advanced Wound Management. In 2011 Smith & Nephew sales exceeded $4 billion dollars


We managed Smith & Nephew’s distributor network in Latin America from 2008 through 2011 and delivered more than 400% increase in profitability. This growth was achieved by converting the #1 trauma distributor in Chile, Winning the Costa Rica national tender and expanding markets in Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay, Venezuela and Colombia and Brazil through targeted support to distributors and the establishment of KLEOS branded training.


As a result we received multiple awards for Outstanding Sales Growth.

We developed the medical device economic development plan and coordinated introductions of medical device manufacturers in the United States and Latin America.


The result was an expansion of medical device manufacturing and international trade for the region.

Recruiting Quantitatively  linked to Strategy

What made this assignment different is that as pioneers in vascular Brachyatherapy they had very esoteric skills requirements for both medical device and nuclear industry experience that proved hard to match for conventional recruiters.


Our response was to develop a skill matching time based quantitative model linked to a recruiting plan. The model allowed us to demonstrate the impact of not having a resource to optimize the hiring process and outsource work when a skill set would not be a required core competence.


Using this model we placed over fifty employees ranging from Directors and nuclear specialists to production operators and managed the outsourcing of noncore skill sets such as process validation, technical writing, and technology assessments.


Our approach saved Novoste significant time and expense and allowed them to focus on their core business during a period of explosive growth.
