071 -

On this episode, I was joined by Etienne Nichols, who is a Medical Device Guru and Host of the Global Medical Device Podcast. Etienne Discusses:

  • Translating lessons from the Steel Industry into MedTech
  • His experience on combination products
  • What is the most important quality system element?

Etienne Nichols is a Medical Device Guru and Mechanical Engineer who loves learning and teaching how systems work together. He has both manufacturing and product development experience, even aiding in the development of combination drug-delivery devices, from startup to Fortune 500 companies and holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. Having managed cross-functional teams to update designs of legacy products, Etienne understands the pain of following the Design Controls process in paper-based QMS environment. His expansive knowledge, experience, and passion with medical devices is evenly matched with how much he enjoys helping customers work efficiently through the design and development process to bring safe, high quality products to market.
