Steve Parker, CEO of Creavo Medical Technologies Ltd, has been named as one of the UK’s 100 most inspiring individuals as part of The Manufacturer’s Top 100 2016.

With judging criteria spanning from ‘Unsung Hero’ to ‘Young Pioneer’, Steve, who has held senior roles in international medical device companies for the last 35 years, was nominated in the Bold Investor in New Markets category. This was for the instrumental role he has played in the commercialisation of Creavo Medical Technologies’ first device, VitalScan which is about to begin largescale, multi-centre clinical trials. Individuals are nominated for the Top 100 by readers of The Manufacturer, the wider industrial community and the public, for their contributions in changing the face of industry.

Steve, along with 300 others, gathered at an event earlier this week at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to celebrate the Top 100’s launch.

Nigel Fine, Chief Executive of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and TM Top 100 Judge 2016, said: “The UK’s manufacturing industry makes a significant contribution to the UK economy – so it’s vital that government, employers and professional bodies continue to work together to ensure that our manufacturing industry thrives. The Manufacturer Top 100 is a great way to celebrate the diversity, creativity and success of our manufacturers and inspire role models to attract more young people into manufacturing.”

Steve Parker, CEO of Creavo Medical Technologies, said: “It is a huge honour to be recognised with so many leaders in the manufacturing industry. This is not only the result of my own hard work, but that of the whole team at Creavo to get us in a position to launch the clinical trials of our first device within just two years of the company’s establishment as a spin-out from the University of Leeds.”
