Surgical Innovations Group Plc (AIM: SUN), the designer, manufacturer and distributor of innovative technology for minimally invasive surgery, announces the appointment of Jonathan Glenn as Senior Independent Non-executive Director and Chairman-designate of the Company with immediate effect. 


Jonathan is an experienced board director and chairman, with an excellent track record in the medical device sector. He is currently Non-executive Chairman of Tissue Regenix plc, and was formerly Group CEO of Consort Medical Plc from 2007 to 2020, where he oversaw the £230m acquisition of a European contract development and manufacturing organisation.

As part of our planned succession arrangements, we are now delighted to have Jonathan joining us, and look forward to working with him to complete the transition in board composition for the next stage in the Company's evolution."

About Surgical Innovations Group plc

The Group specialises in the design, manufacture, sale and distribution of innovative, high quality medical products, primarily for use in minimally invasive surgery. Our product and business development is guided and supported by a key group of nationally and internationally renowned surgeons across the spectrum of minimally invasive surgical activity.


We design and manufacture and source our branded port access systems, surgical instruments and retraction devices which are sold directly in the UK home market through our subsidiary, Elemental Healthcare, and exported widely through a global network of trusted distribution partners. Many of our products in this field are based on a "resposable" concept, in which the products are part reusable, part disposable, offering a high quality and environmentally responsible solution at a cost that is competitive against fully disposable alternatives.


Elemental also has exclusive UK distribution for a select group of specialist products employed in laparoscopy, bariatric and metabolic surgery, hernia repair and breast reconstruction.


In addition, we design and develop medical devices for carefully selected OEM partners and have also collaborated with a major UK industrial partner to provide precision engineering solutions to complex problems outside the medical arena.


We aim for our brands to be recognised and respected by healthcare professionals in all major geographical markets in which we operate and provide by development, partnership or acquisition a broad portfolio of cost effective, procedure specific surgical instruments and implantable devices that offer reliable solutions to genuine clinical needs in the operating theatre environment.
