Invetech, a full-service provider of design, development and product realization services with a focus in healthcare markets, has announced the appointment of Janet O’Meara as Vice President, Finance.
Janet joins Invetech with over 30 years of experience in corporate finance and accounting, with the last 18 years in Head of Finance roles in international cross-matrix organizations across medical technologies and telecommunications.
Prior to joining Invetech, Janet served as Finance Director ANZ at ConvaTec. She has extensive business partnering experience, and her skills encompass finance and analysis, combined with commercial knowledge and people leadership.
In her role leading Invetech’s Finance Division, Janet plans to add value through leading a high-performance team towards greater business enablement. “What excites me about this role and the finance team here at Invetech is that the focus is very much on looking forward; not just reporting the numbers in a more backward-looking way. We take the financial information, data and analytical skills and combine those with what is happening in the business to envisage where we are going to go as a business.”
“At Invetech, finance partners are true business partners. It’s not just about being compliant and technically savvy but being able to support business growth through anticipating things before they happen. It’s really about predicting and being able to look around the corners.”
“Janet brings to Invetech not just a wealth of corporate finance and accounting expertise, but a strong vision for the finance function and team. The combination of her financial expertise, operational acumen and medical technology industry knowledge will enable her to lead a strong finance function and help us develop and establish new business models and practices to both better serve our broad client base and our constantly evolving business setup as we are continuing to create new lines of business,” said Andreas Knaack, President of Invetech.
Janet has a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Finance from the University of Melbourne and is a Chartered Accountant and member of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ). She is based at Invetech’s Melbourne office.
