RTI Surgical has announced that Robert P Jordheim, executive vice president and chief financial officer of RTI, has been named interim chief executive officer.

He succeeds Brian K Hutchison, who informed the RTI board of directors last August of his decision to retire from his position as president and chief executive officer and step down from the company’s board of directors. The transition is due to be completed December 17, 2016.

Jordheim’s chief financial officer responsibilities will be assumed on an interim basis by Wy Louw, vice president and controller of RTI. According to a company release, the RTI board of directors continues to actively review candidates for the permanent chief executive officer position.
