CEO New Year Message 2016
08 February 2016
Welcome to 2016 and what an exciting year this is going to be for us at GC Aesthetics. Firstly I wanted to share with you some of the successes we have had since I last wrote to you.
I talked to you in my last blog about the launch of our new and improved breast implant ‘IMPLEO’. We had a busy week in London in October celebrating our IMPLEO launch, with around 150 surgeons from 22 countries joining us; GC Aesthetics hosted our 1stGlobal Scientific Meeting,with speakers focusing on surgery using our product, talking about the genesis of IMPLEO and our excellent clinical data.
We also held our second Latin American Annual Training for Young Surgeons. This event is co-organised with the Argentinean Catholic University (UCA) in Buenos Aires and took place in December. We had more than 45 surgeons from 6 countries participate and the event was also streamed for those who could not make it in person.
2015 was a significant year for us in Brazil and we achieved the top market share position and gained major in-market recognition as a leading brand. GCA Brazil hosted a gala event during the 52nd meeting of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery held from November 11th to the 15th. Over 150 surgeons, the full Board of the Society and luminaries of the field attended the event in Belo Horizonte.
Supporting our surgeons and through them our customers is a key part of GC Aesthetics and our team throughout our business work hard to deliver outstanding service and products of which we are all proud.
This year will see us with lots of exciting initiatives, especially with our focus on striving for meeting the needs of our customers with our the ‘We Care’ mind set and continue to empower women in more parts of the world and support them in changing their lives.
I wish you a wonderful winter or summer depending on where you are in the world and look forward to sharing our news with you again shortly.
