Meet the Meditech team

Meet the FMC Meditech team!

From kids to cats and football to kayaking, FMC Meditech are a busy bunch when they’re not recruiting. Let’s put some faces to names…

Lucy Hopwood – Specialist Marketer

The Meditech team at FMC work with leading OEMs around the world, recruiting top talent to work with cutting-edge imaging, medical devices and surgical technologies.

The secret behind their success? A hardworking team of recruitment consultants who know their medical stuff and relish the chance to unearth superb off market talent.

As well as their hiring successes, our team boasts a range of talents and hobbies outside of the MedTech space, from tennis to fire breathing…

Ryan Luckman – Director

Ryan launched FMC Meditech a decade ago and continues to steer the team to parts of the market where its knowledge and specialism can shine. He also leads on senior and executive appointments across EMEA and North America. Not only is Ryan our Meditech know-all, he’s a qualified football referee, keen golfer and Dad to a type 1 warrior.

Charlotte Ashton – Associate Director

Charlotte is FMC’s cream of the crop when it comes to MedTech recruiting – she’s a specialist in the Surgical Device market with seven years’ experience under her belt. Charlotte’s natural competitiveness drives her to solve niche, senior hires for clients throughout the UK, EMEA and North America – she’s also partial to a very regular H&M haul (when she’s not on a self-inflicted spending ban), and is a mum to Noah.

Natasha Szombara – Head of Meditech

Tash is Head of Meditech is simply mind-blowingly amazing at what she does! So much so, she’s become quite the Ophthalmology and Therapeutics celeb during her ten years at FMC – priding herself on the relationships she builds in the space. We’re counting down the days until she returns from maternity leave after having her first child, Parker, in late 2022.

Francesca Garrod – Senior Account Manager

Frankie is another one who bosses recruitment life day in and day out, focussing on the Orthopaedics and Surgical markets. Inspired her own (part bionic!) mum who has had several orthopaedic surgeries over the last few years, Frankie finds it incredibly rewarding to be part of an industry that indirectly contributes to patient outcomes. Outside of work, she has a wonderful husband and crazy cocker spaniel, Bertie, who often joins the team in the office.

James Green – 360 Account Manager

James has spent the past year and a half smashing recruitment life – quickly following in Tash’s footsteps in how thoroughly he has immersed himself into the world of Ocular Health. He never sits still outside of work and often surprises us with yet another niche hobby – if he’s not onstage acting across the UK, then he’s fire breathing, instructing beginner kayakers or practicing gymnastics.

Hannah Cannon – 360 Account Manager

Hannah has enjoyed assisting clients in finding, engaging and securing off-market candidates across the UK and EMEA for almost two years – and does a cracking job of doing so! She’s a huge tennis fan, both following the sport and as a hobby, and carries her competitiveness into recruitment (and FMC’s Summer rounders tournament), where she gets a huge buzz from supporting candidates into a new role.

Griffri Walker-Slade – 360 Account Manager

Griff is a machine when it comes to placing both graduates and senior sales candidates into new roles for leading MedTech companies. Alongside his impressive knowledge of the Surgical, Orthopaedics and Diagnostic space, he is also a football and F1 expert and played American Football at university. He’s also the unfortunate victim of an FMC-wide joke about loving all things Spain – if you know, you know.

Adam Leeder – 360 Account Manager

Adam brought five years of recruitment experience to FMC Meditech, where he now specialises in working within Medical Imaging and Diagnostics and leads the Visualisation and Therapeutics team. Away from the office, he is a proud Dad to Evie and plays any sport he can access – his wife will tell you she is a Sport Widow!

Charlotte Clancy – Recruiter

Charlotte has taken her love of sales and building relationships from her estate agency background to her role as a recruiter within the MedTech space. Outside of the office, she enjoys time with her son Roman and Colin the cat, and exploring her love of fashion.

Josh Flowers – Recruiter

Helping people find the perfect role for them is Josh’s favourite aspect of recruitment. Fresh out of the University of Lincoln with a degree in Sports Business Management, Josh has continued his passion for sport by supporting (the very local club) Manchester City and playing football himself on Sundays.

Charlie Fox – Recruiter

Charlie has been with us for just shy of a year and has already sourced hordes of talent for some big names in the Diagnostics space. Her and her son Oscar are very often frequenters of Lincoln’s parks followed by a Costa or B&M trip – so much so she reckons she could claim shares in both companies!

Jack Adams – Business Development Executive

Jack sits across the Business Development and Meditech teams where he works to build partnerships with exciting MedTech companies and show them what FMC can bring to the table. He’s an avid bird watcher on the side and also loves to mention that he used to work in car sales at least 10 times a day.

Let’s talk…

Overall, a pretty wonderful bunch if you ask me!
