Colleagues wish key account manager well as he step down after 42 years

Carestream Health is sad to announce that Tim Kilby, key account manager for the southern territory, has taken early retirement due to personal reasons.

Kilby has been in the medical imaging business for 42 years, starting in sales in 1976 with Medirad Services Limited, a 3M film distributor and imaging accessory supplier.  After 21 years he moved on, and has worked in the southern region for Imation, Kodak and finally Carestream Health with some considerable success.  It was a period of great change in the medical imaging business with the move from analogue to digital but he coped well with this and had the benefit of working with some great teams, who he would like to thank for their support.  In this time Kilby has made some great and long-standing friendships.

For the last couple of years he has been battling his own cancer, while also losing his beloved radiographer wife Ros (nee Williams) to the same illness last year.

At present he is making good progress with his health and hopes that soon he will become more mobile and be able to take up some of the activities he enjoyed in the past, particularly his love of photography and travel.

He hopes to keep up the friendships he has made over his long career and should anyone wish to get in touch, contact Wendy Tiller at Carestream Health at

Carestream Health UK managing director Charlie McCaffrey said: “The last two years have been a very difficult time for Tim and Ros, but we shall remember them in happier times.  Tim, or Skipper as we call him, has been a great colleague and friend for over two decades and will be greatly missed by customers and colleagues.  Among many career highlights, who could ever forget his participation in the Calendar Boys Charity (naked) Calendar in 2005?  Thanks for everything Skip.

“You are a professional, a gentleman, a great sport and you deserve a long, happy and healthy retirement.”
