Kim is service driven, with over 20 years’ experience in the supply and dispensing of ostomy and continence products, she understands the importance of providing a personal, professional, and efficient service and ensures we go the extra mile to meet our customers’ expectations. She also has a naughty sense of humour but don't tell her we said that!
Craig SmithFinance, Facilities & Deputy Manager
Craig is our Finance, Facilities & Deputy Manager. After working in the surgical products business for 11 years Craig joined the Manfred Sauer Team a decade ago. He instantly found it inspiring hearing from customer’s regarding how our products improve their quality of life and how we as a company really make a difference. Craig is now heading up the Finance and Utilities side of the business which separates him a little from the day-to-day business, but he does like to roll up his sleeves and be hands on if needed and his focus remains the same in wanting to help people in any way he can. Craig enjoys a laugh and joke (VERY dry sense of humour) with his colleagues to brighten the day and sometimes it works 😂. Outside of work he is into fitness and enjoys running, rowing & swimming but also likes to relax and put his feet up from time to time.
