Authentic thinking, empathetic living
We are the Novacorr family.
Keith and Nova Atkinson
Founders and Owners.
Keith and Nova have nurtured Novacorr since inception and maintain and active interest not only in the progress of the business and continuous effort to improve our products, but also the broader health care sector. Novacorr will continue the innovation, compassion and genuine customer commitment.
Keith has played a huge role in taking Novacorr to the levels it’s achieved today. Having been an advocate for anyone with a disability he also played a leading role in the development of our Huntington’s and Bariatric products. Keith has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and although he’s taken a back seat from his business, he continues to fight the good fight for himself and our clients.
Nova brings considerable business experience from a career in manufacturing, customer oriented and business development. She actively oversees all activities across our business and insists on personally testing everything we build.
Sally-Anne Knight & Josh Atkinson
Siblings Sally and Joshua are keen to follow in their parents’ footsteps and maintain Novacorr’s high standards! During their careers at Novacorr both have been extensively involved in all areas of the business. Currently, Sally leads our sales force by example whilst Joshua looks after our clients from Brisbane all the way to south Gold Coast & Tweed.
Sally’s passion is evident in her enthusiasm to work with OT, hospitals and care facilities to provide the human face of our business to the customer. She will demonstrate our product with pride but also compassion for the customer/patient to ensure the best possible care solution in each and every case. She knows our products and the combinations to achieve the perfect outcome.
Joshua is in his second spell at Novacorr having taken a couple of years away from the business to support his Police Officer wife and their young family. Joshua has worked in both manufacturing and Novacorr’s R&D program and has an extended knowledge of all our products which he now uses to help assist our clients in his role as Healthcare Consultant.
