“I’m honored to lead Global PPE and work alongside Sanjay because this is a company that is committed to creating solutions to fulfill the unmet safety needs in the U.S. healthcare industry” McNeill stated. “The pandemic has caused vast disruption and chaos due to safety concerns. My goal is to work tirelessly to bring order and create forward-thinking innovations. Global PPE has a powerful mission and vision, and I know that my dynamic with Sanjay will be the reason it comes to fruition.”
