CEO & Co-Founder
- Iain was educated in Perth, Scotland and started his career as a golfer, representing his country at an amateur level before turning professional at the age of 17.
When injury curtailed his promising professional golf career in 1994, he entered the retail sales industry. in 1998 Iain was headhunted to join the management team at Ansell Healthcare, being one of the largest medical consumables companies in the world. His success over 6 years at Ansell Healthcare led to a directorship position in 2004 with the Wenaas Group, a leading global workwear firm, which at the time was rapidly expanding into the PPE sector.
In 2006, again headhunted, Iain once more took a vertical step in becoming the Managing Director of Bodyguards UK, specifically focused on the disposable glove industry throughout Europe. The business grew to a £35 million turnover within 4 years before being sold to its largest competitor. Most notably, in 2013 Iain founded Supermax Healthcare Europe.

To this day Supermax continues to increase its market share and is currently responsible for producing 12% of the world's latex examination gloves.
