Niall Sweeney

Throughout my career, I have repeatedly grown businesses by delivering innovative medical products in markets such as drug delivery, medical information, orthopedics and dentistry.

At Becton Dickinson, I created a product development capability and award-winning safety needles, which grew to a $200 million business. At Stryker Spine, I led the U.S. development group and launched nine implant systems over a period of three years, winning several awards and generating $57 million in incremental revenue.

In addition to leading technical and marketing organizations, I have performed and led all aspects of product development from inception to post-launch support. This allows me – as a senior advisor – to offer Popper and Company clients astute strategic assessment and actionable plans for tactical execution. I have built critical capabilities within organizations, managed pipeline resource allocation, used effective design reviews to catch issues early, and created regulatory applications that deliver rapid clearance. I have implemented changes that were situationally appropriate and delivered meaningful business results – and I can help our clients do the same.

Today, I work with a variety of startup companies, helping them to articulate compelling investment propositions and to develop their proprietary medical technologies.

I received an M.B.A. in Marketing, (with distinction) from New York University, Stern School of Business and a Bachelor’s of Mechanical Engineering, Honors degree from University College Dublin (Ireland). I enjoy triathlon racing, a pursuit which helps me keep up with my two young children.
