About Our Owner
Privately held AttenuTech and Davis Lead Aprons are headquartered in the beautiful Tampa Bay area of central Florida and owned by Kevin Welniak of Lutz, FL. A nearly life-long Florida resident, Kevin moved to Tampa upon graduation from the University of Alabama in 1987 where he played football as a scholarship offensive lineman for legendary Coach Paul â€śBearâ€ť Bryant and (upon Coach Bryantâ€™s untimely passing) for former New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Ray Perkins.
Kevin has over 20 of experience in the medical field, starting in 1988 as a specialty pharma representative where he sold the revolutionary respiratory Rx product Humibid® for Adams Laboratories (which later became the renowned product, Mucinex®.) In 1992 he accepted a position to become a Specialty Independent Rep selling IVC filters, infusion services, dialysis access catheters, laparoscopic surgical instruments and drainage catheters to hospital Interventional Radiology, Cath Lab and Surgery departments.
While selling on-site during interventional imaging procedures in the mid-1990s, Kevin consistently observed a shortage of available leaded protection in fluoroscopic environments. He often found himself scrounging for an apron and never considered a thyroid shield (collar) until someone made him aware of the inherent and compounding risks associated with exposure to scatter radiation. With this in mind Kevin became devoted to educating his accounts and customer physicians about the urgent need for comprehensive personal radiation protection. That focus became a driving force behind the most innovative, clinically driven and application-specific radiation attenuating garment and accessory company in the marketplace today.
Kevin graduated from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa with a Bachelorâ€™s of Arts degree in Communication with minors in Advertising and Public Relations. When not working, Kevin loves to spend time with his wife Terri and daughters Taylor Lynn and Jordan Ashley. He is active in his church and outdoor activities and enjoys unwinding by doing yard work. The Welniaks are all avid followers of college football and enthusiastic supporters of their beloved â€śCrimson Tideâ€ť of Alabama.
