SpineGuard has appointed Stéphane Bette, co-founder, chief technical officer and US general manager, as chief executive officer of the company effective 13 July.
Pierre Jérôme, who has served as chief executive officer since the company’s founding, will continue to serve as board director of the company.
Bette co-founded the company and has led the US operations since 2009. Prior to this, he spent 10 years at SpineVision, a private spine company, in a number of roles, ending as US general manager. He started his career at Sofamor Danek in the 1990’s, prior to its acquisition by Medtronic.
Jérôme comments: “After driving SpineGuard with close support from Stéphane since its inception, I am particularly glad to hand over the baton to him now—when momentum is building for the company with sustained growth, promising perspectives in China and the further deployment of our Dynamic Surgical Guidance technology platform in spine and dental through our partnership strategy.”
