Matthew Theobald was born in Surrey, but has been doing all he can to get further North with every move since university! He met his wife (a Yorkshire lass) at his first job after graduation, relocating to the rural part of the parish from the East Midlands in the mid-1990s. Matthew's career has spanned numerous medical device development projects, managing healthcare regulatory compliance for several sites and responsibility for IT quality across 12 European sites for the largest global healthcare company.
Matthew is now Managing Director of a medical device consultancy that helps save, and improve, patients' lives; working with both private and public sectors to design, develop and launch medical devices and drug/device combination products. He has co-authored three books and presented at many international conferences.
Matthew became a parish councillor at the December 2013 meeting. He is also a Governor at Stapeley Broad Lane CE Primary School, where his daughter is a pupil. Much of the family's free time is spent on its narrow boat, berthed on the beautiful Llangollen Canal near Nantwich.
