AUDUBON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading musculoskeletal implant manufacturer, today announced a new leadership structure to enhance organizational alignment and continue the Company’s industry leading revenue growth and operating performance into the future.
Globus Medical’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Dave Demski, will transition from that role and assume the position of Group President, Emerging Technologies. In Mr. Demski’s new role he will focus on long-term strategic initiatives including robotics, trauma and other related opportunities for long term growth. Mr. Demski will also continue to be a primary liaison between the company and its investor, surgeon and hospital constituents. Mr. Demski will report to David Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and work with the Board of Directors and our executive team to formulate the long-term strategic direction of the company.
“Emerging Technologies will be a major part of Globus’ strategy for long term growth. My experience and primary interest is with building new businesses and helping them grow to realize their potential. I’m excited to be able to focus my efforts on helping Globus achieve its goals in this important area,” Mr. Demski said.
Anthony Williams, Globus’ current Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Counsel, will assume the role of President of Globus Medical. This promotion comes after 12 years associated with the company in various capacities. Mr. Williams has been responsible for the company’s business development efforts since 2013, during which time he was instrumental in completing several strategic acquisitions intended to help Globus achieve its goal of industry-leading profitable growth.
“Anthony has been involved with Globus since we started the company in 2003, initially as our outside counsel and then as our General Counsel and head of Business Development. He has continued to add value and has taken on roles of increasing responsibility since he joined Globus on a full time basis in 2011, and I am delighted to appoint him as our next President,” Mr. Paul said.
Globus also plans to implement organizational changes in its sales and marketing departments to best service its healthcare customers. Brett Murphy, who is currently Globus’ Executive Vice President of US Sales, has been promoted to Group President, Commercial Operations reporting to David Paul and will now be responsible for Globus’ worldwide sales organization. “Brett joined Globus 10 years ago and has continued to assume roles of greater responsibility in our sales organization over that time,” stated David Paul. “His experience and knowledge of our business make him well qualified to assume leadership of our global sales and marketing efforts.”
These management changes were made to better align the company’s global organization with a focus on creating long term strategic value and ensuring profitable growth. “These appointments should help bring our innovative products to a greater number of customers in the US and internationally,” stated David Paul. “I look forward to helping more patients benefit from our leading technologies in the musculoskeletal marketplace.”
