MY STORY
360° minded

In 1998, he founds NATEC Medical LLC in Boston (United-States). Lacking the funding necessary to kick off his project in France, he moves to the United-States where, for several years, he essentially develops catheters for interventional cardiology.

Spurred by his industry experience in the field of medical technology, he relocates his operations to Mauritius in 2000 along with ten employees. NATEC Medical Ltd has successfully transitioned from a start-up to an innovative and dynamic enterprise with more than 400 collaborators.

The enterprise is specialised in the manufacture of cutting-edge percutaneous interventional devices and minimally invasive medical technology. It conceives and manufactures angioplasty balloon catheters destined for interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, gastroenterology, and urology.

Vincent Lagarde is also the Director of several other companies: Xtruline (extrusion unit) Abiolabs (microbiology and DNA testing unit), Tobili Investments Ltd (real estate) and Umbrella C (business solutions provider).

Committed to offering optimal schooling conditions to his children in Tamarin, on the West Coast of Mauritius, he initiates an educational project – the launch of a kindergarten and primary school in 2003, Paul et Virginie, the 5th private school to adhere to the French educational program.

He is a member of the Club APM (Association for the Progress of Management) and of the CCIFM

PERSONAL BRANDING

IMG_2072
Why cultivate a personal brand?
Personal Branding came into my life at a time when I could take a step back and meditate on my career path and personal life. It enabled me to find my real self in the process, but also to acknowledge my strengths and weaknesses. Thanks to the guidance of a coach, I have come to understand - with acute clarity - who I am and what I want. Knowing myself is a strength I rely on when taking professional and personal decisions.
But not only.
It also consists of an authentic intangible heritage founded on personal, humanist, and professional values, convictions and beliefs and the vision that spurred NATEC and that will determine its future. It is important to leave one’s mark.
For my children and collaborators
It is essential to me that my children exert themselves in as much as they develop a strong sense of responsibility. That they know about my career path and draw inspiration from it, like I did with my own grand-father’s. That I pass on my values, my convictions. That they understand my choices and, at times, my absences. That a strong work ethic, perseverance and compassion be the foundations of their adulthood. It is essential that our collaborators understand and adhere to the values stated and that my commitment to self-development and rigor is transmitted to them. Personal branding is an original platform that sensitizes my clients, collaborators and others to better understand and share my work ethic and values. My goal is to ultimately be able to detach myself from my companies and pursue my own personal goals, hence the importance of transmitting my values and principles to my collaborators for the sake of continuation.

My Inspirations

I quite like Sheth, Mittal and Newman’s (1999) definition of an opinion leader as “a giver of information and counsel that impels the person on the receiving end to accept the suggested viewpoint.”
Regardless of their background, role models are a source of inspiration, a driving force that pushes me to evolve - that is, a as long as you stay truthful to yourself and understand the ways in which you may be influenced, and what these role models help you achieve.

My greatest source of inspiration is my grandfather. Coming from a large family, he was able, with the help of his sister, to get enrolled in the Ecole des Arts et Métiers of Aix en Provence. After spending a few years doing public works and chemistry, he purchased a shipyard in Toulon. He supplied the French navy and even cared for Calypso, Captain Cousteau’s (another one of my inspirations) legendary ship! My grandfather was an extraordinary man, constantly creating and inventing. Yet, family always came first. In order to have his seven children by his side, he built a large family home on the hillside in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. As a child, I spent all my summers there, which undoubtedly shaped my values and my love for nature.
