CryoLife names new president and chief executive officer

10th July 2014

CryoLife has announced the appointment of Pat Mackin as its new president and chief executive officer, effective as of September 2nd 2014.

Mr Mackin will join the company from Medtronic, where he most recently served as president of cardiac rhythm disease management, the company's largest operating division. He is a respected professional with more than 20 years of medical device industry experience.

The new chief executive is expected to be appointed to the firm's board of directors after his employment begins and will play a key role in helping CryoLife build on its leadership in the cardiac and vascular surgery fields.

Steven Anderson, the firm's current business leader, will continue to fill the role until Mr Mackin joins, at which point he will move into the executive chairman role.

Mr Anderson said: "We believe he is an ideal leader for CryoLife given his strong background in cardiac and vascular medical devices and broad international sales and marketing experience."

The company achieved record-breaking revenues during the first quarter of 2014, thanks to strong sales of key products such as its HeRO Graft.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801734611-ADNFCR
