Working for your success as a tenacious
process improvement champion
As an engineer and senior manager, Alan Broadwin has expertise with medical and high-tech products, holding positions in the medical device field since October 1969. He has an intimate knowledge of the technical, manufacturing, marketing, and regulatory constraints of a device manufacturer as it developed, packaged, labeled, and validated its products.
Running through Broadwin's professional career is his participation in the Ultrasonic Industry Association. He served as a member of the board, as President, and as a symposium chairman. Because he was able to interact with people and ideas from such diverse fields as power ultrasonics, welding, acoustic streaming, and medical devices, he was able to cross the line between technology, medicine, and business. He was also at the focus of high-risk research and engineering efforts of the Cavitron Corporation.
Being able to structure and lead a group of technically astute engineers, he was able to tease from nature a series of unique medical devices. When he started his own consulting business, he realized that the international standards that are used to direct medical device companies and aerospace companies are focused on the same areas of process control, traceability, and reliability.
Thus, he has been able to successfully make the transition from head of a technology-driven company to a service organization that advises companies in how to structure their businesses.
