Sue MacLeman, an experienced and respected leader in Australia’s medtech industry, has been appointed to the Planet Innovation (PI) Board as a non-executive director.

Sue has more than 30 years’ experience as a pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical technology executive having served as CEO and Board member of several ASX and NASDAQ listed companies in the healthtech sector.

She is current Chair of MTPConnect, a not-for-profit industry growth centre for the medtech, biotech and pharmaceutical sectors. She is also Chair of ASX-listed Anatara Lifesciences Ltd, Tali Digital Ltd and Oventus Medical Ltd, and a non-executive director of Palla Pharma Ltd and veski.

In addition to her board memberships, Sue is appointed to several academic and government advisory boards including the Prime Minister’s Digital Expert Advisory Board, CSIRO Health and Biosecurity Advisory Committee, Genomics Health Futures Mission Expert Advisory Committee (MRFF) and a number of COVID-19 taskforces.

Sue said she was delighted to join the PI board after having followed the company since its inception.

“I have always been impressed with the PI team’s ambition, high performance and willingness to back themselves. They have continued to successfully execute on their strategy to leverage their core design capability to drive revenue and value. The repeat business from global and local clients is a testament to the work they do and value they bring to the customer,” Sue said.

“It is always wonderful to work with high performing teams and I am looking forward to using my skills and expertise to assist PI as they continue to scale globally.”

PI CEO Stuart Elliott said Sue’s appointment further strengthened the PI board and helped set the company up for continued success.

Sue brings a wealth of experience directly relevant to the PI mission, including an impressive track record in executive and board roles in a range of medtech and biotech companies. Sue has strong expertise in the public markets and M&A, and many connections to key stakeholders in the healthtech ecosystem globally,” Stuart said.

“Her expertise is highly complementary to the existing PI Board and we are excited to have access to Sue’s insights to help guide the business during the growth period that we have ahead of us.”
