Chief executive officer – Growth, international expansion and new market development
Eykona Technologies Ltd was spun out of the University of Oxford in 2007, having developed a cutting-edge 3D scanning technology.
With a focus on the Medical sector, the business developed a hand-held imaging solution that could be used by Healthcare professionals in the clinical assessment and measurement of wounds.
This pioneering product combines a camera with a software package and whilst its uses in woundcare are significant, the solution also has a versatility and considerable market potential in other imaging applications both in the UK and overseas.
Having completed a round of refinancing and restructuring, Eykona’s leadership team had created the ideal platform to pursue further growth with a view to a possible exit within three years.
Key to the success of their growth strategy would be the appointment of a new CEO who could deliver the company’s vision and drive market penetration in diverse territories and application areas.
Through one of Eykona’s investors, MTI Partners, Intramezzo was engaged to find a world- class, entrepreneurial candidate with a background in the early stage MedTech sector and experience of at least one previous exit.
The successful individual would be required to run a dual strategy of direct and indirect sales and would, therefore, need to be a strong negotiator, well-versed in selling capital equipment to the international Healthcare market, with the vision to explore other verticals.
“Intramezzo delivered a strong list of potential CEO candidates to a tight specification. We are delighted with the outcome and have a world-class candidate in place”
