Kevin Ryan brings over thirty years’ experience in executive management, and associated Board Directorships. He also has an extensive history in very specialised and highly technical sales and marketing roles.
Kevin has a diverse knowledge of the key areas of public and private healthcare in specific regions around the world and a requisite business knowledge and activity of the market forces and dynamics which prevail. Kevin also served on the Board of the Australian Healthcare Industry Association (MTAA) for 8 years.
As a founding Principal of Gateway Enterprises, Kevin is once again forging new business relationships, shareholdings and non-executive strategic influence on new and developing businesses and companies. This applies to a wide spectrum of industries, including Healthcare, both within Australia and New Zealand, and on several off-shore geographies, which also involves the UK and US markets.
Co-founder of Device Technologies Group of companies in 1992, Kevin was instrumental in laying the foundation stones of the business, and to its growth and success. Device Technologies introduced a very unique range of technologies to the ANZ health system and pioneered new forms of surgery and medical procedures via comprehensive clinical education programmes. Over the course of 25 years, the company grew in size to 650 employees, across several geographies, including Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA. At the time of its sale in FY16, the company was the largest independent healthcare business in ANZ, and arguably the largest independent healthcare distribution business in the world.
Passionate about supporting high-growth businesses, he is dedicated to using his own experience and interests in the provision of a professional and well managed enterprise. Kevin thrives in an environment where the delivery of customer expectations and ensuring high value always equates to high deliverables. Kevin is a large shareholder and part of the non-executive and executive management team.
