S.A. Biomedical contributes and supports the larger industry for the improvement of South African healthcare through their SAMED membership. Neil’s membership of and participation in SAMED stems from a desire to serve the medtech industry, affect change and ultimately improve patient lives.
The son of a nurse and a love for sports and the outdoors, Neil developed an interest in the human body and healthcare. His studies in Human Movement Studies at UPE (NMMU) set a foundation for sports medicine orthopaedics and ultimately his career within the medtech industry.
Neil is gratified by the progression and success of his business as a market leader in South Africa. He is especially proud of the actions taken by the company during the Covid-19 pandemic. Though the decisions were tough, they ensured that all staff were retained, and the future of the company was sustained – protecting the livelihoods of their employees. The various teams and collective company achievement spurs Neil on.
