ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Supporting its growth and commitment as a leading provider of high-quality medical products to healthcare systems, ASP Global has appointed Doug Shaver as Chief Executive Officer effective this week. ASP has grown significantly over the past few years as it continues to focus on clinician-led product innovation and developing new customized products in partnership with many of the top IDN’s in the country and other healthcare providers. In order to reinforce this growth, ASP has made significant investments, including expanding its best-in-class team of executives.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Doug’s caliber and executive experience join the ASP team,” said Lorne Tritt, current CEO and Founder of ASP Global.

Doug's experience will help ASP continue to scale our business and deliver increasing value to our customers.”
Mr. Shaver has led multiple businesses and functional areas with a focus on growth and business development.

“It is truly impressive what ASP Global has accomplished during an unprecedented pandemic by stepping up to help customers fulfill their PPE needs, including a recent partnership to manufacture masks here in the US,” described Doug. “That the ASP Global team has been able to deliver for health systems across the country is a testament not only to the capabilities of ASP Global but its commitment to customers. The last several months have highlighted the need for health systems to take greater control of their supply chains and have reinforced their commitment to do so. I am excited to join this dynamic and growing business and I am looking forward to working alongside the team to help build out our overall capabilities to better support our customers’ needs.”
