To match medical and scientific innovation with the best talent in Japan
A partnership where we can see the impact on patient care in Japan was with the manufacturer of the world's tiniest heart pump, a first-to-market technology that saves the lives of heart failure patients. Hynd worked exclusively through their start-up phase introducing eighteen leadership and management members. This led to this business hitting home runs with product registration, reimbursement price, professional education and sales and as a result patients in Japan benefit from this therapy
Being frustrated with distributor is common and one significant success we had was with the largest privately-owned US-based medical device company. Their objective was to go direct, and we supported them to recruit the leadership team of twelve members which saw their business grow to over 250 staff in the following 2 years solidifying their brand in Japan.
We are close to the market we are aware of management issues and we also know leadership styles and performance of the talent pool available so when we consult businesses on issues such as sales performance, staff turnover, regulatory approval and poor communication with their HQ we guide them to the best long-term solution.
Our success supporting "first-to-market" technology enter Japan is really illustrated when our own personal connections are treated and their lives saved by these devices. Technologies we supported include a neurostimulation device that cures sleep APNEA, a clot retrieval product for DVT, orthopaedic trauma products, robotic surgery, skincare products, plate readers for proteins, cancer detection and treatment devices, surgical navigation technology, pre-clinical research tools, diabetes treatment and a stent graft.
Over the years we have put dozens of teams together. This is a magical aspect of our work is hand-picking and attracting the best talent to a start-up operation and providing the priceless experience of working with other talented, like-minded professionals.
