Our Story – Ortho Consulting Group

How We Became
Ortho Consulting Group

Our Story

Matt Woods, founder, started the business in 2010 as an international executive search firm, Orthoexecutive, specialising in the orthopaedic and spine industry.

Whilst working within the medical device executive search space, Matt noticed a need for a distributor search service for manufacturers looking to expand into European markets. This led to the creation of Orthoconnections, an online platform with a database of verified distributors and manufacturers. The platform was used for manufacturers to advertise their current distribution opportunities to distributors.

After the launch of Orthoconnections in 2018, we merged the two entities to create Ortho Consultancy Group; a management consultancy that globally grows sales channels directly or indirectly for SMEs and start-up businesses within the industry.

Strategic Focus

Our mission is to provide a unique service for start-ups and SMEs in the orthopaedic, spine and medical device industry. We support and deliver global expansion strategies with our all in one consultancy firm.
