Chief Operating Officer David Mowry will take over as the interim president and CEO next week. Mr. Kohrs is slated to serve as a consultant to Tornier through May 12, and though his departure came suddenly, it is not the result of any disagreement or dispute with the company.
Kevin O'Boyle, the company's non-executive director, has been named interim vice chairman.
