MAE Consulting Group, LLC Adds Strategy and Business Development Lead

Steve Ives

Manchester, NH – MAE Consulting Group, LLC ( is pleased to announce the addition of Steve Ives to lead strategy and business development. Ives brings more than 25 years of experience helping emerging companies achieve rapid growth. He will further develop MAE’s vision as a strategic business partner navigating medical device companies through the regulatory, clinical and compliance process, from concept to final approval to profits.

Steve Ives has a wealth of experience advising companies that have created sophisticated solutions using complex development processes. “I’m excited to start a new challenge at MAE Consulting Group where the emphasis is on developing and executing a strategy that ensures regulatory and financial success,” Ives said.

“The FDA’s goals are one and the same as those of disciplined medical device companies which strive to deliver quality solutions that improves people’s lives,” he added.

Janet Kwiatkowski, President and Founder of MAE, said, “The med-tech community offers state-of-the-art solutions built on best practices. Regulatory compliance is the ability to document and publish what they are already doing in a meaningful manner.

“The FDA doesn’t hinder innovation, it supports, promotes, and ensures it. MAE is a strategic partner that can navigate med-tech innovators, with integrity, through the complex regulatory and compliance process, from inspiration to installation. I am confident Steve will drive this initiative to success for our clients and MAE.”

Ives will continue to drive MAE’s “road map to the U.S.” program forward that includes the recent office launch in Manchester, England. This Manchester to Manchester bridge is strategically central to the U.S. and Europe, providing a clear path for a vibrant and growing global U.K. medical-device ecosystem of firms wanting to bring their innovations to the USA.

MAE Consulting Group of the United States and now the United Kingdom, is a business service provider specializing in offering domestic and international regulatory, clinical and compliance services to healthcare companies.

With expertise in commercializing medical and in vitro diagnostic devices, MAE Consulting can market your product globally and across the Atlantic — in either direction.

The new MAE office in Manchester, England is strategically located to take full advantage of the UK government’s Northern Powerhouse initiative supporting innovation and the MedTech community in northwest England.

UK advantages include its centrality to Europe and the USA, a growing economy, and a highly educated and technically skilled talent pool.

The American marketplace is challenging to companies seeking to bring products to market, and to export and import them, particularly in the tough regulatory environment surrounding medical and diagnostic devices.

With MAE Consulting, there’s no need to “mind the gap.” Our specialists have expertise navigating the alphabet soup of regulatory acronyms, from FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to the BIS (Bureau of Industry and Security) and the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) to the ISO 13485 Certification necessary to deliver MedTech innovations to the global marketplace.

The world of import and export licensing and compliance is complex. Trade compliance and medical regulations vary from the USA to the EU and the UK. With MAE Consulting’s presence in England, clients are ensured that their intellectual property, sensitive medical devices, and technical imports and exports reach the global marketplace in full regulatory compliance.

The UK has a vibrant and growing global MedTech ecosystem. MAE’s team of professional consultants is proud to offer signature specialist support to companies seeking to strategically market their innovative MedTech devices to the USA and the world.
