Matt Woods, Founder of OCG, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Clive to the team, and I’m very much looking forward to working with him. He is extremely well-respected in the industry and will be hugely valuable for our bracing clients wishing to expand their global sales channels.”

Clive Mitchell added: “I am very pleased to have been invited to be involved in such a unique business.  I have known Matt for 12 years and have a huge respect for what he is achieving with Ortho Consulting Group.  OCG represents a genuinely superb proposition for orthopaedic manufacturers wanting to grow OUS.  This is an exciting time in the industry and I am sure we will achieve a great deal working together.”

About Clive Mitchell

Clive started his first enterprise at the age of 25 and since then has had numerous businesses across a range of industry sectors. He is a serial entrepreneur offering a wealth of experience in business start-up, with real specialisms in sales and marketing.

For the last twelve years his focus has been in the Orthopaedic bracing sector, where he saw significant opportunities in a market that was dated and lacking innovation.  Clive has subsequently built two extremely successful businesses.  Brace Orthopaedic which is an independent distributor of unique products sourced from around the world and Step-On International, which is a spin off business now managing the global distribution rights to the unique Step-On AFO.

His successes don’t just extend to the business arena, as he has represented his country in sport and regularly competes in Ironman triathlons.  Clive’s mantra is that ‘a problem is an opportunity in disguise’ and is constantly inspired and motivated by people rather than possessions.
