The addition of Dymedex to Navigant, boosts the firm’s capabilities in the medical technology and life sciences industries; through the addition, which will be integrated into the firm’s wider propositions, the firm says that it is better placed to support its clients, leveraging Dymedex tools, methodologies and expertise. The transaction, the value of which has not been disclosed, sees the Dymedex team, including its co-founders Joseph Galatowitsch, formerly at Medtronic and 3M, and Ross Meisner, a former Consultant at A.T.

Eduardo Schur, Managing Director and Global Life Sciences practice leader at Navigant, says, “In today’s medical device market, it is critical that companies create the conditions necessary to optimise growth, utilisation and adoption. Dymedex has a proven methodology to assist companies in accelerating the development of global markets. And while Dymedex has been successful in the medical technology field, we are excited by the opportunity to expand their methodologies into other life sciences areas such as pharmaceuticals and biotech.”

The combination of Dymedex’s proprietary tools and methodologies with Navigant’s deep industry expertise and global footprint will enable our clients to fully capitalise on their opportunities.”
