"I am delighted to be helping Shield connect with US sellers looking for trade buyers from Europe or Asia. The current weakness in the US economy combined with the rising value of European and Asian currencies creates a perfect opportunity for foreign investors in the US.
My experience working with thought leaders and progressive companies in healthcare combined with Shield's in-depth knowledge in the medical device, biotech, pharma and information / technology sectors offers an excellent transatlantic bridge" said Ken.
