Find-me appoints Rachel Boden as new CEO

  • Written by Michelle Smytheman

Find-me Technologies, the creator of the Find-me Carers Watch, a wearable device to assist the elderly and those diagnosed with dementia, is preparing for rapid growth with the appointment of Rachel Boden as Chief Executive Officer.

With a career in health spanning over three decades, Ms Boden brings extensive experience in healthcare product commercialisation, having worked in start-up to large corporate pharmaceutical companies servicing Asia Pacific.

Find-me technologies Chair Anne-Marie Birkill said the company was delighted to welcome an individual of Rachel’s calibre to the role of Find-me CEO.

“Find-me is poised to become a world leader in the field of mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) providing safety, security and peace of mind for the frail and vulnerable and those who care for them. Rachel has the skills and experience to drive the company into this next exciting phase,” Ms Birkill said.

Prior to joining Find-me, Ms Boden was a Commercial Director at Perrigo Australia where she drove the transformation of the Hospital, Prescription and Contract manufacturing business profitability through strategic partnerships, innovative product development and strong sales and marketing platforms. She has also held senior management positions in sales and marketing with companies such as Obagi International and AstraZeneca.

“The Find-me Carers Watch provides the opportunity for millions of people to feel confident and safe, whether in their homes or outside living life. It is this freedom and peace of mind that provides the potential for the carers watch to have a significant impact in healthcare today and in the future,” Ms Boden said.

“My focus throughout my career, beginning in nursing has always been motivated by a passion to find healthcare solutions through pharmaceutical products and devices. I am therefore very excited to join the Find-me team and its founders, who are equally committed to developing the carers watch into a device that will extend the possibility of millions of people world wide to maintain their independence.”

“Given the aging population and escalating healthcare costs, there are opportunities to grow and quickly scale up this product offering. I look forward to working closely with the Find-me team, clients, shareholders and partners to deliver continuing innovation to the Find-me carers device that will assist carers and healthcare professionals provide independence to the wearers of the device,” Ms Boden said.

Find-me is a portfolio company of the OneVentures Innovation and Growth Fund II and the Advance Queensland Business Development Fund.
