BVI is thrilled to announce two new members of our team here in the UK. Chris Farmer as Sales Manager and Graeme Wellard as Premium IOL Specialist, both in the southern region of the UK. We asked both to say a little bit about themselves and their new jobs:
“BVI Medical’s ambitious plans for growth have made me very excited about joining the business at this pivotal moment in time. As someone who is always open to new ideas, it is refreshing to work with a dynamic sales and leadership team that are innovative and young in spirit, just like me.”
“I have worked in medical sales, specifically in the ophthalmic industry, for over 30 years. Heading up teams in Allergan, AMO, Abbott and more recently Johnson & Johnson where I have been leading several product launches over the years. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the very best surgeons and phaco technology and being involved in developing new ideas, equipment, and instruments for cataract surgery and phaco. I look forward to bringing my industry knowledge, industry-wide working relationships and creative approach to BVI.”
“I am delighted to hit the ground running with the talented team at BVI Medical, continuing to work in a world I know and love.”
Chris has two daughters at University and a high maintenance French hound. Outside of work he likes nothing more than spending time with his family, enjoying shared travels and experiences.
In his spare time you might find him cycling and skiing in the Alps. He also competes in running events and triathlons throughout the year.
“I am excited to join a fantastic UK team at BVI. Already I can see the value of the deep relationships this company has with customers as they are specialists in the industry with the most diverse portfolio of Surgical Ophthalmic products. As IOL specialist for the South, I aim to support our team and customers in southern England with an established and ever evolving IOL portfolio. The BVI IOLs have a great deal to offer in improving visual outcomes for patients. Especially in the premium mono and tri-focal markets.”
In his spare time Graeme loves running long distances and pushing himself in training to reach new personal bests. He aims to go the extra mile for our customers here at BVI and contribute to the immense value BVI can offer their customers.
