Corindus Vascular Robotics has announced that it has named Gary Lickovitch as vice president of sales and service. He brings nearly 20 years of medical device sales leadership experience to his role at Corindus. He most recently served at Boston Scientific as area vice president for the Interventional Cardiology Division responsible for sales execution and strategy. Lickovitch will report directly to Corindus’ president and chief executive officer, David Handler.
As well as his Boston Scientific role, Lickovitch also held prior sales leadership roles at vascular medical device companies Abbott Vascular and CR Bard. He says: “I am extremely excited to join Corindus. Knowing the cath lab, and the occupational hazards facing its physicians and staff, it is very important to protect these workers from radiation and orthopaedic injuries by bringing precision capabilities to interventional procedures. I believe that the CorPath system’s robotic-assistance technology will become the standard for PCI in the coming years.”
Handler comments: “I am thrilled to have Gary join Corindus in this important commercial leadership position. He has a tremendous track record in bringing new technology and innovation to interventional cardiology customers. Gary’s deep clinical understanding of interventional procedures and cath lab devices, in conjunction with his strong sales leadership skills and customer relationships, are tremendous assets which have enabled him to consistently deliver impressive sales growth results throughout his career.”
