Smiths Group plc today confirmed Roland Carter as President of Smiths Interconnect following his interim appointment to the role six months ago. The change takes immediate effect.

Carter, 47, was previously managing director of the Connectors business unit of Smiths Interconnect for almost 10 years. Before that he held a number of senior international posts in Smiths Medical, encompassing design, operations and project management.

Smiths Chief Executive Philip Bowman said: “Roland undertook the leadership role after a difficult three years for Interconnect and has helped restore growth both in revenue and underlying profits. Maintaining this momentum in difficult trading remains a priority as the business is rebalanced towards faster-growing markets over the long term. Roland’s effective mix of strong engineering and commercial skills equips him well for the task.”

Carter, who holds degrees in mechanical engineering and electronics, joined Smiths Industries in 1987 on an engineering sponsorship.
