Prior to AO, she was with the Manitowoc Crane Group for 12 years.

About the Presentation:
Since their inception in 1968, American Orthodontics has seen a lot of change in their 50 years. Jessica will share information related to American Orthodontics history and current business. She will discuss the changes that AO has seen related to Procurement practices.
There are different quality/regulatory requirements of a supplier that supports a medical device manufacturer versus a typical manufacturer that relies on ISO9001 to control. We will learn about the "Risk Based Approach" to supplier qualification and management of those suppliers supporting a medical device manufacturer.
Jessica will discuss steps a Procurement professional in this role must take to ensure mitigation of risk associated with the supplier. She will walk us thru some examples of the documentation required based on the product or service that a supplier is providing. Finally, she will end by discussing the impact on a medical device manufacturer if they and their suppliers are not following FDA, CE, and Health Canada regulations.
