LeMaitre has many longtime employees who’ve grown and advanced with the company.
Ryan Connelly, Vice President, Research & Development
Ryan began at LeMaitre as a temporary employee in Research & Development. Just two months into a three-month contract, he was hired full-time. That was more than 15 years ago. Today he leads our Research & Development department. Why has he stayed with LeMaitre?
Ryan also got the opportunity to learn more about the manufacturing side of the business. “I moved to Phoenix for two years as General Manager, leading a recent product acquisition integration. That experience, seeing how the ‘other side’ works, was invaluable when I came back to R&D.” Perhaps the most rewarding part of his work is, “When someone finds out that I work for LeMaitre and they tell me that our products helped save their life, or save the limb of someone they know. I can’t even describe how that feels.”
