He was previously General Manager at Leica Biosystems, a cancer diagnostics company which provides complete solutions to laboratories around the world from patient biopsy to diagnosis.
Andy succeeds David Spillane, the founder of Tecniplast UK, who gave 23 years of devoted service and played a key role in the success of Tecniplast UK by defining the company’s overall strategy and vision. David Spillane will be stepping down as Managing Director on February 14th, 2020; he will continue as a Tecniplast UK Board Member and Chairman.
Andy will join the Global Tecniplast Family based in Varese near Milan; he will play a significant role ensuring the UK & Ireland Life Sciences and Pharma markets continue to be supported.

“I am very excited to be joining such a well-respected and market leading company. I hope that my many years of management and leadership experience will add value to an already strong company. With twenty years’ experience of working in the cancer diagnostics market I feel I can bring new and fresh ideas but also recognise that there are already robust, strong and successful processes in place and I look forward to working with the UK and Ireland team. I am particularly looking forward to spending time meeting existing and new customers and hope that we can continue to build even stronger partnerships”. Andy Humes, Managing Director, Tecniplast
