During his time at Costello Medical, William has enjoyed the successful delivery of projects that span the entire breadth of the company’s service offerings, with a focus on health economics, market access and evidence development. The thing that has enthused him the most, however, is supporting the complex journey of manufacturers of innovative medical technologies in bringing ever more sophisticated and ingenious solutions to healthcare professionals and patients. It is this passion that led William to formalise a dedicated MedTech Division in 2017.

William is joined by a highly committed and talented team, and together, plans to further enhance the support that Costello Medical is able to provide to manufacturers of medical devices, diagnostics and digital technologies. William is dedicated to expanding the services that the company provides and is particularly keen on delivering integrated strategic support to help manufacturers throughout their product lifecycle.

After obtaining a first class honours degree in Biochemistry at the University of Cardiff, William completed a Masters degree in Medical Sciences and a PhD in neuroendocrinology at the University of Cambridge. During his doctoral training, William trained in high-throughput genomic technologies and advanced microsurgical techniques. William also holds a Postgraduate Certificate in “Health Economics for Health Care Professionals” from the University of York.
