Han Kappers

Chief Executive Officer and Founder of The Suture Store

Han Kappers is co-founder of The Suture Store. He has worked more than 20 years within the medical device industry. During this period, Han has lead several sales & marketing divisions in the Benelux. As a General Manager, Han worked in two different countries, dealing with different cultures and market circumstances. Over the years Han has been responsible for various product divisions such as wound care products, sutures, orthopaedic implants, products for neuro surgery, dental products, disposable needles and OR disposables like gloves, masks etc.

Han is convinced that it is desirable for hospitals to have an alternative to branded products. Branded products and generic products can easily exist next to each other. It is up to the hospital to choose which products they want to use. Generic if possible, branded if necessary.
