FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED
Darren Reeves began his career in the healthcare industry in 1988. As Darren’s expertise in medical device regulations and compliance grew, so did his understanding of the complexity facing manufacturers. As a result, he formed DP Distribution & Consulting ® in 2000 to help business leaders with medical device regulatory consulting challenges. Susan Reeves later joined Darren in 2018 as a medical device consultant, just in time to address many urgent pandemic needs.
Together Darren and Susan have continued to grow the team and the business. DP has served more than 200 companies both nationally and internationally, specializing in quality and regulatory support for the medical device industry.
COMPANY FOUNDER, PRESIDENT

Darren has found success through speaking in simple terms, offering leaders wise business solutions and treating people respectfully.
Darren has built an expanding team of medical device consultants with complementary skill sets, as well as an extensive network of associates. As a result, DP is able to address most quality and regulatory compliance needs.
VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCE
