Medtronic leader among Ireland’s most powerful women

 March 14, 2019

Medtronic Vice President Bronwyn Brophy is among Ireland’s 25 Most Powerful Women by Ireland’s Women’s Executive Network (WXN). Brophy leads the company’s Early Technologies division for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

In Ireland, the WXN is the largest network of female senior executives, managers and entrepreneurs, with over 2,500 members.

Bronwyn says: “I joined Medtronic in April 2014 as Vice President, Early Technologies, Europe. Having worked in the medical device industry for 19 years I have to admit that my current role encompasses all of the things that I enjoy doing – developing new businesses, driving growth, building high-performance teams, and bringing new therapies to market that can change the standard of care and deliver better patient outcomes.”

It’s all about your team and the people around you

Bronwyn feels very proud to represent Medtronic and has plenty of advice for other women who wish to enter a leadership role.

“It’s all about your team and the people that you surround yourself with. Leading without having the right people in place is tough, but when you get it right you can surpass all expectations,” she explains.

“I have an energetic and passionate team that shares a common vision. It's a lot like conducting an orchestra where everyone wants to play together and in tune.”

Bronwyn says she is extremely happy in her role, explaining: “I work for a company that wants to alleviate pain, restore health and extend life - and I wouldn’t swap that for the world.”
