Erik van Dijk joins MD squared’s leadership team

Yesterday was a special day for MD squared! Five years after starting MD squared as Consultancy for Medical Device Start- and Scale-Ups @Erik van Dijk will join the MD squared Leadership Team as a full partner.  

Erik brings with him a strong background in translating innovative ideas into MedTech products both  in a multinational as well as in leadership positions in start- and scale-up companies. This enables MD squared to support our clients with pragmatic approaches in implementing a QMS and building the technical documentation. 

Claus Schaffrath, founder of MD squared explains: “Since I started MD squared five years ago, it has always been our ambition to help MedTech clients to bring their product to market across critical constraints, be it limited resources or regulatory complexity. Our approach to this has been to enable informed choices and targeted support to match available means to achievable results.  

Erik’s experience in guiding (outsourced) development efforts and his pragmatic approach to build fit-for-purpose quality management systems is driven by “doing the right things and doing the things right”; his proven track record to ensure regulatory-compliant Technical Documentation and Validations helps our clients accelerate their Product Realisation.

In a fast-changing MedTech environment, Erik’s expertise and leadership strengthens our ability to offer a full circle of inter-disciplinary expertise in Business Strategy & Marketing, Clinical, Regulatory, Quality, Research & Development, and to meet the growing demand of our clients.  


Erik adds: “MD squared is for me the ideal setting to use the experiences I’ve gained over the past years to support our clients with developing and bringing their products to market. The variety of applications and wide range of medical indications we serve is exciting and rewarding. I look forward to working with Claus in building out the company further.”
