New senior vice president for IlluminOss Medical


IlluminOss Medical has appointed Dwayne Montgomery as its new senior vice-president of sales and marketing. Montgomery, an IlluminOss Medical press release reported, has more than 20 years of experience building and leading successful medical device companies in large, mid-cap and venture-backed stages.

According to the press release, Montgomery brings an extensive and proven track record of sales and marketing initiatives that make him an ideal fit to drive IlluminOss towards achieving its growth objectives in the fracture fixation market.

In his most recent role, at Trans1, he was responsible for North American sales and sales operations. In another former role (global vice president and general manager for Smith & Nephew’s orthopaedic trauma division), he was responsible for global strategic direction and business management (including a US$400 million global sales business).

“Dwayne has an exceptional track record in orchestrating winning sales strategies for companies in some of the most competitive healthcare markets and has vast commercial experience centred on quickly developing strong surgeon relationships,” said Dirk Kuyper, president and chief executive officer of IlluminOss. “He is well respected by his colleagues for possessing exceptional business acumen. Dwayne is exactly the addition our well-rounded team needs to reach our sales goals as we move into the commercial ramp phase of the company.”
