“Together with my fellow Board members, I would like to welcome Marvin to the InspireMD team and look forward to his leadership and guidance as the company enters its next phase of growth,” said Paul Stuka, InspireMD’s Chairman of the Board of Directors. “We believe Marvin is a proven leader with significant medical technology experience and is the perfect fit to further advance development of CGuard EPS through development in the U.S. while continuing to expand our commercial presence abroad.”
“We made many important advancements in the business as well as the ongoing development and commercialization of CGuard during Jim’s tenure. I would like to thank him for his tireless work and many contributions to get us to this point and wish him the best as he begins the next chapter in his professional career,” Stuka concluded.
“Throughout my career in medical technology I have had the privilege of contributing to the development and commercialization of many life changing innovations, and I believe CGuard EPS fits well within this category,” said Slosman. “There exists a significant and growing body of clinical evidence demonstrating the superiority of CGuard relative to most other carotid artery disease treatment options, and we believe we have significant opportunity in front of us to greatly expand the availability of this technology to physicians and patients. We will continue to work vigorously toward this goal.”
“I would like to thank the Board for the opportunity to serve as CEO, as well as the entire InspireMD team, without whom we could not have achieved important corporate and clinical milestones,” said Dr. Barry. “I believe in the potential of CGuard EPS, which incorporates the company’s proprietary MicroNet technology, to help so many patients globally who suffer from carotid artery disease. We have established a solid foundation from which to drive future growth and success.”
