Kevin is currently performing operations, engineering and business management consulting for the medical and diagnostic device industries while seeking his next full-time opportunity. A true "fix it guy". Kevin's breadth of medical manufacturing and engineering experience ranges from Class III implantables to high volume disposables and everywhere in between. His experiences include management of design and construction of the world’s largest surgeon’s glove plant for Baxter Healthcare in Penang, Malaysia. He has directed major ERP implementations, led the operations scale up for medical device startups and even led a company repurchase attempt based on a business plan he developed. In his many roles, Kevin’s responsibilities tend to always migrate to the areas of most technical, managerial and/or business complexity. His most recent success managing a major product improvement for Allergan is a great example of his; ability to gain a quick understanding of the business situation; utilize strong technical analysis and creative product development skills; and lastly complete the project quickly and decisively combining his strong results-orientation with his broad project management experience. The completion of this project resulted in the redesign of a $100 million sales 510K product in near half the normal time eradicating a ~4% field failure rate to zero. Prior to Allergan, Kevin was contracted by Beckman Coulter to perform a company-wide analysis to identify a “Best of Class” vision and related implementation plan involving integration of manufacturing automation, project management, LEAN, Six Sigma and other associated World Class initiatives.
